Support Scotland's heritage by giving now to the National Trust for Scotland

Ranger Service

The National Trust for Scotland is the largest employer of rangers in Scotland. The Trust's rangers are skilled practical naturalists with a strong commitment to conservation.

They work in varied areas across Scotland, including countryside, coastline, country parks and mountains.

As well as managing and protecting their sites, the rangers organise guided walks and events and provide opportunities for researchers and students. Many sites run curriculum-based school programmes.
