There are over 350,000 red deer in Scotland - and they have a massive impact on the landscapes of the Highlands. Deer are culled each year in an attempt to manage their impact, but over the last sixty years, a debate has raged regarding the size, nature, and purpose of the deer cull. Should deer be protected? Or should the glens and mountains be returned to the wild? And if so, what happens to the people that call these places home?

There are estimated to be over 350,000 red deer in Scotland. Deer populations, when uncontrolled, have a massive impact on the landscape and ecosystem structures of the Highlands. As a result, deer are culled each year in an attempt to manage and maintain the landscape and ecosystem that they are a central part of. Over the last thirty years however, a debate has raged regarding the size, nature, and purpose of the deer cull. The impact of this debate changes how people see, interact with and even inhabit the Scottish highlands.
