Cairngorms Agricultural Advisory Group (CAAG)

CAAG was established in early 2024 to represent the interests and views of farmers, crofters, organisations and groups which have an interest in agricultural issues in the Cairngorms National Park.

Meetings are planned to be held 2 to 3 times a year, depending on the level of business to discuss, and will be Chaired by a Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) Board Member with CNPA providing secretariat support.

The group’s main functions are:

  • To act as a line of communication between the Park Authority and agricultural businesses.
  • To provide advice and guidance to the Park Authority on agricultural issues and how these can be managed in the best interests of all concerned.
  • Support and collaborate on projects associated with the delivery of the National Park Partnership Plan around agricultural interests.
  • Share examples of good practice and improve knowledge transfer, innovation and skills within the sector.

Membership of CAAG is drawn from various relevant agencies, farm and crofting representatives, local farming groups and agricultural agents who have a keen interest in agricultural issues across the area.
