For a number of years Wilderness Scotland has supported the conservation group, the John Muir Trust in their work to protect and preserve Scotland’s wild places. In becoming a John Muir Trust Peak Partner we are delighted to be able to formalise this relationship and further support them with their work.
What does it mean?
Thanks to the generosity of our clients, our Conservation Contribution scheme generates a significant amount of funding that will now be completely donated to the John Muir Trust. We are making a commitment of a minimum of £5,000 per year. (Previously these funds were shared across a number of conservation groups). The John Muir Trust can rely on this investment to go towards conservation projects that we also have a deep connection to.
“When I was a child in Scotland, I was fond of everything that was wild, and all my life I’ve been growing fonder and fonder of wild places and wild creatures.”

What conservation work are we supporting?
Recently we have decided to support the John Muir Trust as they work in a part of Scotland very special to us, the Isle of Skye.
Watch this short film to learn how the John Muir Trust are conserving wild land on the Isle of Skye.
As one of Scotland’s most popular tourist areas, the Isle of Skye is under a lot of pressure when it comes to maintaining wild areas. There are over 60km of paths that allow a huge variety of walking here. However, the work to maintain these paths adds up.
The pathwork done by the John Muir Trust here aims to provide continued and improved access to the spectacular landscape, to repair the worst affected paths, to retain the area’s scenic beauty and to minimise the impact on fragile habitats – addressing damaged areas where paths have spread or been washed away, and allowing plant, animal and birdlife to flourish.
Wilderness Scotland is by far the best and most professional hiking experience we have ever had. I would recommend them above any other guided hiking firm we have ever used in over 8 years of doing guided hikes in Ireland, France, Spain and Scotland.
