Inverewe’s diverse plants flourish here, despite the northerly latitude, thanks to the warm currents of the Gulf Stream and the foresight of its founder, Osgood Mackenzie, who planted over 100 acres of woodland to shelter the garden.Learn more » Donate now »

Glencoe is one of Scotland’s most iconic and dramatic landscapes. However, this natural beauty brings its own challenges. Constant maintenance and care is required to fight the effects of challenges like river bank erosion, upland erosion caused by thousands of visitors to our mountain tops and degraded heath and woodland caused by years of overgrazing. We have an ongoing program of river bank erosion monitoring, a team working to repair hill paths and heather and woodland regeneration projects across the property to combat all of these challenges.Learn more » Donate now »

However, it is becoming a challenge to keep the garden paths in an adequate condition and work needs to be undertaken to find a solution to path repair.Learn more » Donate now »

Protect Pitmedden Garden
In the stunning Great Garden of Pitmedden, thousands of colourful annual bedding plants make up an elaborate summer spectacle.

Specialist stonemasons, of whom there are very few, are vital to ensuring Pitmedden’s wonderful gardens are repaired, as and when required.Learn more » Donate now »
