Scottish Black Bee Reintroduction
The plan is to introduce an intensive breeding programme for the Scottish Black Bee. Bees are essential for the ecological feel-being of the island - their cross pollination supports biodiversity and the Arran Trust feels this is a very worthwhile project.
Run by the Arran Beekeeping Club, this project is in it's infancy and we will keep you posted as to its progress!
The bees were purchased in Jan 2013 - this is a library image
