Classification of six golden eagle Special Protection Areas (SPAs)

A consultation over six proposed Special Protection Areas (SPAs) for golden eagle took place between 13 January 2010 and 7 April 2010. Following the consultation six SPAs were classified by Scottish Ministers on 28 October 2010. The map and citation for each site can be found below.

Please note that the boundaries for Cairngorms Massif, Glen Affric to Strathconon and Moidart and Ardgour Special Protection Areas changed slightly as a consequence of comments received during the consultation period. These changes are reflected in the final maps and citations.

If you would like to request printed copies of any of the SPA documents or have any questions about the sites, please contact Fiona Menzies by telephone 01463 725019 or by email at
