We are making a difference
Better protection for wild land
In 2014, our campaigning work resulted in the Scottish Government introducing better wild land protection measures. This included adoption of the Wild Land Areas map into planning policy.
Expanding native woodland
In 25 years, we’ve achieved a tenfold increase in native tree cover on our land on Knoydart. This is encouraging a return of wildlife and will improve biodiversity in the long-term.
Establishing effective deer management
We’ve helped to put deer management reform onto the Scottish Government’s agenda. We need changes that will restore Scotland’s deer populations to what nature can support.
Engaging more people with nature
We help thousands of people get out into nature every year through the John Muir Award. Many of them would not have the opportunity otherwise.
We have been delighted to award grants to the John Muir Trust for paths and land purchase over many years. We share the same aims to preserve wildlife in Scotland and look forward to a continuing close relationship.Scottish Mountaineering Trust
