The Knoydart Foundation

Background

The Knoydart Foundation is a charitable, limited company. The community buyout took place in March 1999, and in 2009 celebrated its 10th anniversary. As a partnership of local residents, the Highland Council, Chris Brasher Trust, Kilchoan estate and the John Muir Trust, the aim is to preserve, enhance and develop Knoydart for the well being of the environment and the people - residents and visitors alike.


Aims of the Foundation:

"The Foundation aims to manage the Knoydart Estate as an area of employment and settlement on the Knoydart Peninsula without detriment to its natural beauty and character and to seek and encourage the preservation of its landscape, wildlife, natural resources, culture and rural heritage".
