How can the cost of the damage be so high?
New trees have been planted on the whole area of the past year or 2 I think. Not cheap...
Many trees will survive a fire. I think it's a figure plucked from the air.

Do you know how much it costs to establish native woodland or are you just plucking quotes from the air?
No. I used to work for Tillhill forestry. I have a fairly good idea.
Yes, that's possible. But that won't be billed to BA.
There's been an arrest:
"Police have arrested a 39 year old man in connection with an investigation into a hill fire at Glen Tarbet on the 1st April 2013. The man is expected to appear at Fort William Sheriff Court on Monday 15th April 2013. A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal."

So how much do you reckon it costs per hectare to plant native woodland?
There have been many many fires.
Glen Nevis fire was around the 9th.
Glen Tarbert was around the 2nd.
Looks like a much smaller area than the fire on Mull last week.
Thought these photos were impressive.
Sorry about the Mail, but I found it with a search!
