That magic effect
"People open up more in nature... It's something they need and it's just fantastic... " Take a quick tour of some of the special wild places we take care of.
Managing deer for nature
Reducing deer numbers is critical if Scotland's remnants of native woodland are to survive. We offer insight into the problems facing woodlands such as the Ardvar Woodlands in Sutherland, and explain why we need progressive approaches to deer management.
Amongst the most stunning wild places in the UK; if not the world, the John Muir Trust manages Sandwood for the benefit of people and nature.
Glenlude in the Scottish Borders is a place where the Trust engages many people with nature. Its work to re-wild the area brings people from a variety of backgrounds in touch with the outdoors often for the first time.
A distinctive summit in Highland Perthshire with stunning views, a diverse range of habitats and a unique history. The John Muir Trust maintains the path up this Munro, and works to improve the important habitats here.
The UK's highest mountain inspires many people to climb to its summit. The Trust takes care of the summit of Ben Nevis but the land we manage also covers several more peaks, a stunning gorge, and is home to some rare species.
Since purchasing Li and Coire Dhorrcail in 1987, the John Muir Trust has planted native tree species and reduced deer numbers. Now it's starting to see the natural regeneration of birch, oak, hazel, rowan, Scots pine and other tree species.
Quinag covers 3,699 hectares of the Assynt–Coigach National Scenic Area in Sutherland. The John Muir Trust maintains the mountain path to the summits and works to restore deer populations to levels that the land can sustain. The Trust is actively involved in a local community project called CALL that is regenerating the local landscape.
Our Skye property covers 12,000 hectares of dramatic mountains, rugged coastline, beautiful woodland and important peatland. Much of the property lies within the Cuillin Hills National Scenic Area.
