Make sure the next generation can follow in YOUR footsteps
We care for over 270 miles of upland paths opening up 187,800 acres of glorious Scottish landscape. Our footpaths have to withstand Scotland’s temperamental climate of rain, frost, snow, gales, floods and even blazing sunshine that dries and crumbles the soil around our paths. Without dedicated care and attention, our footpaths would become eroded and scar the landscape, leading to irreversible damage on Scotland’s magnificent mountains.
Your donation will help us to repair, improve and conserve footpaths which reach into some of the most beautiful wild places in Scotland, such as historic Glencoe, Ben Lomond, Torridon and rugged Goatfell.
With your support, we can ensure Scotland’s incredible spaces and places and the wildlife we share them with are protected now and for everyone who follows in our footsteps.
