Rewilding one hundred acres in the Highlands of Scotland, near Loch Ness, planted as a small commercial forest and with some remaining areas of ancient woodland. We aim to restore the native forest and peat bog, inspire people to connect with the environment and reintroduce locally extinct species.

We’re using the IUCN rewilding principles and working alongside our partners to run a living laboratory which will:
- Test innovative approaches for capturing data on social and environmental change using technology such as drones, AI and remote sensing technologies
- Develop a ‘capital accounting framework’ recording, quantifying and valuing the environmental and social changes on the site
- Create engaging ways of communicating the findings and the benefits of rewilding such as virtual reality and digital platforms
