Frequently asked questions

Strathaird doesn’t sound like ‘wild land’ – why did the Trust buy it? 

  • Access to the Kilmarie Hatchery is currently through Strathaird Farm. Buying the redundant Hatchery and surrounding land in 2021 brought both sites together, and created opportunities for development.
  • This purchase offers an opportunity to strengthen existing conservation work and community partnerships, by helping address local priorities.   

What are the opportunities here?

The John Muir Trust believes that wild places are for everyone, and that at Strathaird we have an opportunity to inspire people to connect with and share in the value of wild places. Our approach is to collaborate with others on innovative solutions that address both global crises and local issues.
