The John Muir Trust is dedicated to protecting wild land, speaking out when it comes under threat from inappropriate developments that could cause significant damage to fragile native habitats, wildlife and ecosystems.
However, standing up for wild land requires considerable time, money and expertise and we need your continued support. Please make a donation to our Campaign Fund today and help us be ready to speak on your behalf at the next challenge to wild land.
Stronelairg wind farm
We fought a lengthy and difficult campaign to oppose the planned 67-turbine Stronelairg wind farm in the Monadhliath Mountains. In July 2016, appeal judges overturned the earlier Judicial Review decision in our favour that had halted the wind farm.
Despite this disappointing decision, our actions were not taken in vain. We have raised public awareness of the damaging impact of industrial-scale development in wild landscapes. We have shown our determination to speak up for and protect threatened wild land and we will continue to do so. But we need your help.
Your gift will help:
Defend wild land against inappropriate new developments
Your gift to our Campaign Fund will enable us to mount a strong defence of wild land and benefit from expert help where we need it, for example when facing teams of corporate lawyers at Public Local Inquiries.
Engage with decision makers
Your support will help us engage with politicians and policy makers and ensure that they support the protection of wild land at every opportunity.
