Working to protect the wild places you love
From the remote shores of Sandwood Bay to the rocky summit of Ben Nevis, the John Muir Trust owns and manages more than 24,000 hectares of some of the finest and wildest land in the UK. We repair and maintain world famous mountain routes and work to regenerate native trees and expand wild habitats.
This doesn’t just take time and money – it also requires a committed team of people to carry out hands-on work on the land, day in, day out, in all conditions.
Wild Land Rangers are an essential force in protecting and enhancing the wild land in our care. Please support them with a donation today.
A force for wild land - Rangers on the ground
Wild Land Rangers are your eyes, ears and hands in wild places, planting and protecting native trees, repairing footpaths, carrying out wildlife surveys and deer management, leading volunteer work parties and engaging with local people and communities. Our dedicated team carry out all these tasks and many more on a regular basis to help the places in their care truly flourish.
At Sandwood, we cooperate with the local community and crofters to safeguard precious habitats... It's very hands-on, with regular beach cleans and path maintenance, but the reward is looking out over this absolutely beautiful place.Don O'Driscoll, Sandwood Property Manager
