/ John Muir Trust aiming to buy chunk of Snowdonia
"Carreg y Saeth Isaf (meaning lower rock of the arrow) is an area of native woodland, heath and bog set deep in one of Snowdonia National Park’s wildest upland areas, the Rhinogydd. The 105-hectare property stands at the entrance to Cwm Bychan, at the head of the Artro valley. The site’s high wildlife value is recognised by the number of environmental designations, and is home to greatly diverse birdlife such as redstarts, black grouse, peregrine and pied flycatchers."

While the JMT started off in Scotland they nowadays operate in England and Wales also (e.g. they operate the "John Muir" award across the UK).
> would the implications be for this property?
None at all, considering that the JMT are an independent charity.
Great pic ;)
