Nevis 21: a celebration

On June 21, 2021, the John Muir Trust celebrates 21 years of caring for Nevis.

As the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis is a natural source of inspiration to many. A place of adventure and achievement, spectacular beauty and rare wildlife, it’s somewhere that leaves visitors with a true sense of wildness. But the appeal of Nevis is much more than the peak – it’s the rocky slopes, the crags that provide a home to rare Alpine plants, the plunging waterfall at Steall, and the vibrant native woodlands that edge the river.

Find out how you can get involved in our Nevis 21 celebrations, from supporting conservation work through our Nevis 21 Appeal, to sharing your 'My Nevis' memories of the mountain by emailing our communications officer.

Our vision for Nevis...

...is of flourishing native woodlands, heathlands and uplands; a place where nature is given free rein to develop a natural mosaic of wild landscapes and habitats that lock in carbon; where people are welcome but their impact on the landscape is minimal, and the mountain and its diverse plants, insects and wildlife are protected and valued for generations to come.
