miles from The Highland Club

Be one of the first to experience rewilding in action at Dundreggan and see for yourself how you can help our wild places thrive.
The Dundreggan Rewilding Centre is a gateway to our 10,000-acre flagship estate which is home to more than 4,000 species of plants and animals, including many rare and protected species such as golden eagles and black grouse. Dundreggan is also the location of our tree nursery where we grow around 90,000 trees every year, including hard-to-grow species such as aspen and montane.
Just eight miles from the shores of Loch Ness, the Dundreggan estate has been rewilded by Trees for Life since 2008 and is now recovering from centuries of grazing and browsing by sheep, goats, cattle and deer.
By allowing the forest to recover through natural regeneration, important fragments of Scotland’s Caledonian Forest are expanding and can now be enjoyed by our visitors through exploration of ancient pinewood and unique juniper forest, discovery of centuries of Gaelic history and connection with a landscape undergoing transformation through rewilding.
