Help to restore a beautiful, wild forest in the Scottish Highlands

In 2008, Trees for Life's supporters helped to buy Dundreggan, a 10,000 acre expanse of wild land near Loch Ness, to restore native woodlands and wildlife habitats. It is a very special place, with wildflower meadows and aspen woods along the River Moriston, rising through ancient Caledonian pinewoods to the mires, lochans and heathlands on the higher mountain slopes.

The richness and diversity of wildlife we've found at Dundreggan is astonishing. Over 2,800 species have been discovered, with some found nowhere else in the UK. This wonderful variety of wildlife results from the diversity of habitats at Dundreggan. Sadly, having been managed previously as a sporting estate, few of these habitats are in good condition. To restore and expand them will take long-term conservation action and sustained funding.

Please help to transform Dundreggan for wildlife by Sponsoring an Acre today

With your gift of £60 for each acre you sponsor, you can help to:

  • Expand Caledonian pinewoods for red squirrel, pine marten, wood ants and the Scottish wildcat.
  • Create woodland glades and wildflower meadows for strawberry spider, butterflies and bees.
  • Protect montane woodlands for upland birds and rare insects.
  • Restore wetlands and mires for water voles, dragonflies and damselflies.
  • Link native woodlands across the region to create forest habitat networks where wildlife can roam freely again.
