The Wildland Journal is written to provide a constantly updating resource of news not just about developments across our own holdings but also articles more generally interesting which we think you will find fascinating too.

The following also provides a more focused snapshot of our proposed development activities and current planning applications. This listing is being maintained to offer a first point of contact for details about Wildland’s specific developments, the broader restoration of our estates and the many contributions we have made to the communities that are our neighbours. A more complete listing is detailed on the following page which you can link to here.

Wildland is all about bringing life back to the Scottish Highlands. It’s not a secret place, it’s a place to be shared, a place we wish to thrive, and a place to inspire others just as we have been inspired ourselves.

Planning & Community Engagement

Development which requires planning permission features as a not-inconsiderable aspect of the work of Wildland. The following list and links shows what has been done to date. This list will be updated over time and maintains a record and access point for those wanting to see the work done at Wildland.

A record of the planning applications made by Wildland ltd and Aldourie Castle Ltd. All our planning applications, listed building applications, etc are made to Highland Council.

A few of the applications will have been in the Cairngorm National Park Area and the CNPA have call-in powers for some of the planning applications. The Highland Council Planning Portal will indicate if the detailed record of the decision making is to be found at the CNPA website.

 

Deshar Primary Chrome Book Project Funding

At Wildland we endeavour to support worthwhile funding requests which we receive from the local communities in and around our estates.

Our most recent donation has been to Deshar Primary School which is in the nearby village of Boat of Garten. They have recently been looking for funding to invest in four new chrome books for the primary 4-7 pupils.

A member of the parent council at Deshar Primary has said ”I cannot thank Wildland Limited enough as this will enable all the children to have individual access to a device and will have an invaluable effect on their learning experiences”.
