Dundreggan Rewilding Centre

Explore Scotland's wild forest and experience rewilding in action at Dundreggan.

Dundreggan Rewilding Centre

The Dundreggan Rewilding Centre opened in April 2023 and is the world’s first rewilding centre.

Located in Glenmoriston just eight miles from the shores of Loch Ness, the Rewilding Centre celebrates rewilding and the region’s rich Gaelic culture and offers a gateway for visitors to explore the 10,000-acre Dundreggan estate.

Conservation charity, Trees for Life, has been rewilding Dundreggan since 2008 to restore the Caledonian forest and its wildlife. The estate is now home to more than 4,000 species of plants and animals, including many rare and protected species, and the charity’s tree nursery where around 90,000 trees are grown every year.

Visitors to the Rewilding Centre can explore ancient pinewood, discover centuries of Gaelic history and connect with a landscape undergoing transformation through rewilding. Multi-sensory, hands-on activities are available for all ages and abilities including forest walks, tours of the tree nursery, pond dipping and scavenger hunts, as well as specialist workshops to learn more about bushcraft, foraging, photography and much more.

A network of footpaths, ranging from easy to strenuous, meander through the Dundreggan landscape, offering visitors an opportunity to spot wildlife, see rewilding in action and experience what makes Dundreggan so special.

Dundreggan and Glenmoriston are areas rich with Gaelic folklore stretching back through the centuries and the centre’s storytelling sessions allow visitors to immerse themselves in the history of this unique landscape rich in natural and cultural heritage.

A separate accommodation building, An Spiris, offers a truly immersive experience, allowing visitors to spend longer exploring Dundreggan. With 20 twin/double bedrooms, boot rooms and a communal area for relaxing after a day’s adventure, it’s a comfortable and convenient base for those keen to spend multiple days experiencing the Rewilding Centre, wider estate and local area.  

Facilities at the Rewilding Centre also include classroom space for educational groups, a large multi-purpose presentation and event space, an accessible outdoor play area and a café offering delicious and locally sourced meals, light snacks and refreshments.
