New Natural Heritage Facility Opens Near Loch Ness

The world’s first rewilding centre has been opened in the Highlands that will help more people experience forest restoration, the natural environment and Gaelic culture.

The Rewilding Centre is located at Dundreggan Estate, Invermoriston by conservation, education and research charity, Trees for Life. The project has secured up to £234,554 Green Jobs Funding from Highlands and Islands Enterprise.

The Dundreggan Rewilding Centre in Glenmoriston celebrates rewilding and the region’s rich Gaelic culture. It offers a gateway for visitors to explore the 10,000-acre Dundreggan estate, where Trees for Life is restoring the Caledonian forest and its wildlife.

The centre opened its doors to the public on Saturday 15 April with a celebratory weekend of special events and activities.

Visitors, families and schools will enjoy year-round events and experiences, discover how rewilding benefits wildlife such as golden eagles, red squirrels and wood ants, and learn about Gaelic culture and its deep connections to the landscape.

Displays in English and Gaelic introduce rewilding and the Gaelic language, and a storytelling bothy showcases local history and heritage.

Twenty new jobs have already been created, employing local people, and the facility will generate an ongoing economic boost for local suppliers and services. The period of design and construction has already involved local businesses from architects to plumbers.
