Get involved!

There are a number of ways in which you can be involved in the work we do to help protect and conserve the mountain landscapes.

From Thistle Camps and Trail Blazers to regular or weekend volunteering, there are regular hands-on activities at the Trust's mountain properties throughout the year.

Thistle Camps (18 years and over) and Trail Blazers (16-17-year-olds) offer the chance to learn or improve practical conservation skills amid some truly outstanding scenery. They are also great for kick-starting your fitness routine, and a lot of fun! More details of the events on Arran, Glencoe and Torridon for 2011 are available here.

Conservation Volunteer (CV) Weekends are for volunteer teams carrying out short projects on the properties. Participants often enrol through colleges or universities but the weekends are open to anyone. Recent CV events have taken place on Arran and Glencoe. For more details, click here.

Volunteer opportunities are regularly available at the individual mountain properties. For the latest information, click here.

In addition to practical involvement, the property managers and rangers at Glencoe, Torridon and Arran regularly host events such as guided walks, visits from schools and other groups and land-rover safaris.

Donate to the Sole Trading fund

Money raised by the Trust's Sole Trading fund allows the Mountains for People project to continue its vital repair and conservation work on the mountains of Arran, Glencoe and Torridon.

It also enables the Trust's Mountain Path Management Team provide ongoing maintenance and repair at these and other Trust mountain properties. It is largely due to the team's skilled work (all year round and in all weathers!) that the repaired paths remain protected and that further erosion is prevented.

All this is made possible by the Sole Trading fund. Click here to find out more and give now.
