Wild Space:

JMT Birthday

  • During 2023 the Wild Space in Pitlochry hosted 4 exhibitions - including our special 40th Anniversary exhibition in which we reflected on our work over the last 40 years and looked forward to our vision and goals for the next 40 years!
  • Our fantastic team of Wild Space staff and volunteers welcomed over 15,000 visitors through their doors, helping to promote the Trust to newcomers and increase support by sharing their knowledge and passion for wild places!
  • We had a whopping 576 works submitted to our  Creative Freedom Exhibition call - asking for writers, photographers, sculptors, podcasters, videographers, students, groups and outdoor enthusiasts, to submit their creative vision of wild places to be considered for our Creative Freedom exhibition, opening in Spring 2024!
  • In August, we hosted one very special birthday party - our own! Trust friends - old and new - reunited in Pitlochry’s Wild Space for a fun afternoon of reminiscing, looking to the future and raising a glass to four decades of caring for wild places!

We want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our supporters, members, volunteers, staff, trustees and partners for their continued support over the last 40 years, helping us to work towards achieving our vision: a world where wild places are valued for present and future generations.

All that sun shines on is beautiful, so long as it is wild.
