Rewild and Reconnect

Less physical than our Rewilding Experience but equally rewarding, Rewild and Reconnect is a fantastic opportunity to find out about the exciting projects and rewilding work happening at Dundreggan estate and beyond. There will be time to explore Dundreggan, immerse yourself in nature, learn about the nature and wildlife of the Scottish Highlands and visit some of Dundreggan’s planting areas that have been restored through incredible volunteer work.
