Mountains for People Footpath Project

The Mountains for People project was launched by the Trust in April 2009 to conserve and repair some of the most challenging upland routes in Torridon, Glencoe and on Arran.

The project runs for four years, during which time we'll be renovating the remaining 18 miles of upland paths in the Trust's care that require urgent attention. These are set amidst some of the most stunning, but also some of the most fragile, mountain landscapes. Several of the routes are particularly remote and this poses some serious logistical and technical challenges to the project team!

Mountains for People also encourages members of the public to discover the vital conservation work the Trust is carrying out. So, whether you're a seasoned mountaineer, regular hill-walker or someone who just wants to admire the hills without seeing ugly erosion scars, there's something here for you.

Mountains for People is made possible by the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, the European Regional Development Fund, Scottish Natural Heritage, the Scottish Mountaineering Trust and the Trust's own Footpath Fund.
