National Trust for Scotland
West Affric and Kintail & Morvich Estates
The National Trust for Scotland is a charity set up in 1931 for the preservation and conservation of natural and human heritage that is important to Scotland and the world.
The Trust has gone on to become Scotland's largest membership organisation and a leader in conserving and promoting the country's treasured places so that they can be enjoyed by present and future generations.
West Affric is a vast and remote expanse of wild land, ideally suited to adventurous walkers who want to get off the beaten track. The expansive area includes one of the most popular east/west paths in the Highlands, once part of the drove road from Skye to Dingwall. NTS bought West Affric in 1993 and are carrying out vital conservation work to protect it and restore its natural ecosystem. West Affric is part of the Glen Affric National Scenic Area, a vast area of wild land that gives visitors a sense of being off the beaten track.
Kintail & Morvich offers a true wilderness experience. The dramatic landscapes encompasses the Five Sisters – a mountain ridge incorporating three Munros – and the Falls of Glomach, Britain’s second-highest waterfall, as well as lochs, glens and coastline. There are also two Scheduled Ancient Monuments: the site of the 1719 Battle of Glen Shiel, and Cill Fhearchair, a 2,000-year-old standing stone and burial ground.
Whether you want to take part in outdoor pursuits and adventure activities like hill-walking, climbing and sea kayaking, or just get away from it all and immerse yourself in wild, unspoilt nature, Kintail and Morvich is the perfect place to do it.
