Bennachie Visitor's Centre

On the eastern edge of the Grampian mountain range, Bennachie is one of the north-east of Scotland's most recognisable landmarks.

From its highest summit of Oxen Craig at 528 metres to Millstone Hill and its most popular peak, Mither Tap, history abounds in this ancient landscape.

The Cabrach Trust

Working to safeguard a fragile, significant Scottish community. This remote and haunting land has a history which stretches back to the very first inhabitants of Scotland, and it was once the thriving hub of an illicit whisky industry. An exciting regeneration project to develop a working historical distillery and heritage centre will be the first to tell the ‘secret’ story of illicit whisky distilling and smuggling.

John Muir Trust

To work with others to inspire people to get close to wild nature; speak up for the benefits of wildness; prevent the loss of wild places; manage wild places in a responsible and exemplary fashion; and repair and rewild what has been damaged in the past. The name and inspiration come from John Muir, the Scots-born founder of the modern conservation movement. Muir was passionate about wild places. He explored them, wrote about them and campaigned to protect them.

John O Groats Trail

A 147 mile coastal walking route from Inverness to John o’ Groats, traversing shorelines, cliff tops, back lanes and footpaths of the Scottish Highlands.

The route is a work in progress. Some of it is remote, pathless and challenging terrain. Other sections are already popular walks. The walk is meant to be used both by long-distance walkers going as far as to or from Land’s End, and local walkers looking for a coastal stroll.
