ACRC was established in 2016 by Ritchie Armstrong.

Ritchie has a broad range of experience in matters relating to the countryside, outdoor recreation and visitor management.

Ritchie’s interest in the countryside started back when he was still at school when his main interests revolved around about fishing, field sports, and hill walking expeditions with his family.

 Ritchie has worked as a Countryside Ranger with Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and then moved on to work as a Countryside Ranger with a local authority for 9 years.

He now works with a third sector organisation and operates ACRC part time.
