Kingussie’s Wee Gem Gets a Polish

Kingussie Community Development Company (KCDC) has won a £9000 SMT grant for work on the Creag Bheag path near the hill’s summit. The path is “the jewel in the crown” of the town’s 20-mile path network, and will soon provide an even finer circular hill walk, with fantastic views across the Spey valley.

What is happening to our Wild Mountains?

The wild Scottish mountains are important to hillwalkers so the SMT wants to ensure they are valued and protected. While Scotland has large areas of wild mountains a report released early in 2022 reveals that this “wildness” is in long-term decline, and the rate of loss is growing.

The Munro Legacy

In 2019, the centenary of Sir Hugh’s death, the Munro Society has mounted a fine travelling exhibition, The Munro Legacy, and the Trust is delighted to have contributed £1000 to the venture.

The new Carnach bridge

The Trust was proud to be a major funder of this project to restore a footbridge over a powerful river, more than 10 km from a road, a gateway to the wild hills of Knoydart and now part of the Cape Wrath Trail!

Goatfell summit path

The last 400 m of the main track up Goatfell are never going to be a stroll, but thanks to path work this year they’ll be safer and more enjoyable. The Trust provided £5,000 towards the project.
