All across Northern Scotland, where some of Europe’s last natural habitats cling on, Wildland is looking far into the future and forging genuinely epic landscape scale conservation projects. People and place, community, opportunity and entrepreneurship go hand in hand with our vision for the restoration and revitalisation of this iconic portfolio.

We are custodians for the long term, creating a new way of providing year round hospitality for an audience that appreciates the beauty of nature, design and the experiences we offer. With Wildland, you can enjoy monumentally beautiful big open spaces, unforgettable forays into Great Britain’s last true wilderness and the comfort and cuisine that will bring a perfect end to a perfect day.

Visit & Stay

Home away from home in the Scottish Highlands

Whether it’s the grandeur of the Aldourie Castle, the rustic mix of Scandi-cool and Highlands’ craft at Killiehuntly Farmhouse in the Cairngorms and Kinloch Lodge up in the rugged north, these and other properties create a unique experience to suit all sizes of party and budgets.

Conservation

Our gift for generations to come

The Wildland project has established the foundations of a two-hundred-year vision. Already, there are untold examples of the land being restored to its former beauty: a regeneration of the once great Caledonian pine forests, greater wildlife diversity throughout the holdings and a genuine sense of nature fulfilling its ecological potential. Our vision is to make the shift from monoculture to mosaic; to enable a restoration of habitats that will improve the ecosystem.

“Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”

John Muir
Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher, glaciologist.

Community

A commitment to people & place

We have a genuine interest in the people that live and work at Wildland and in the towns and villages bordering them. The Wildland project has a clear enough grasp of its goals that we are now able to make a firm commitment to being an active participant in the communities that we neighbour. Our ambition is to make direct contributions to the continuance of rural Scotland’s traditional and developing ways of life wherever and whenever we have an opportunity to do so.

Sharing the Wildland story

There’s always something new happening; from the innovative, creative and, above all, sensitive and sympathetic development of our properties. The ongoing restoration of the land and the exciting rehabilitation of the Wildland ecosystems (and the impact this has on the diversity of wildlife that lives alongside us), Wildland estates are in a constant state of flux.

It’s not just the progress of our own holdings, there’s our commitment to our neighbouring communities too; and the journal we maintain here is the perfect way to stay current with our latest initiatives.

Our deep and enduring affection for Scotland’s big open spaces

As this love of Scotland has manifested itself with ever-greater involvement over the years, we have grown to appreciate the breadth of issue and opportunity that we are responsible for. We are proud of – and also humbled by – the scale of commitments we are making as we build on our vision for regenerating Scotland’s big open spaces.
