Friends of Dundreggan

Dundreggan is a 10,000 acre expanse of wild land near Loch Ness. Formerly a traditional sporting estate, it was bought by Trees for Life in 2008 to expand the Caledonian Forest in the Scottish Highlands.


With your support, Dundreggan will be a very different place in 50 years time. Natural woodland, with open glades intermingled with denser areas, will stretch up from the banks of the River Moriston. This diverse forest of oak, pine, aspen, hazel, juniper and birch will grade into montane scrub that will cover much of the higher slopes. Wildlife flourishing in this abundant woodland habitat will include red squirrel, capercaillie, osprey, black grouse and wood ants. Twinflower, creeping ladies tresses and other rare woodland plants will thrive. Our 50 year vision will see a woodland corridor created which connects Glenmoriston and Glen Affric. This will be achieved through natural regeneration and tree planting.


The Friends of Dundreggan are a special group of individual supporters who donate over £1000 per year. If you would like to discuss giving to Trees for Life as a Friend of Dundreggan please contact Chris Aldridge on 01309 691 292 or
