Experience rewilding in action and find out how you can play a part in protecting the natural world.
You are not just a visitor to this landscape or to nature; you are part of it.
Our rewilding journey is visible in the landscape here at Dundreggan. It is in the regenerating woodland; in the birds, mammals, insects and fungi that exist together in the branches; in the bogs, roots and the earth beneath your feet.
Explore our footpath network to see rewilding in action and experience what makes Dundreggan so special.
