Scottish Wild Land Group
The Scottish Wild Land Group (SWLG) is a wild land charity which is run wholly by volunteers. SWLG was established in 1982 to protect and conserve wild land in Scotland, and has campaigned on a wide range of issues.
We regularly produce our magazine, Wild Land News, which is free to members. Please join us today and help to give Scotland's wild places a voice.
You can follow the Group on Facebook and Twitter to receive regular updates, or go to our Articles and Consultations page to see recent articles from Wild Land News and SWLG responses to consultations on issues affecting Scotland's wild land. Copies of our accounts are available here.
Hilltracks - please act today to help ensure reform is achieved - only a few days left...
We are asking all our supporters to write to their MSPs to support stronger control of vehicle tracks in Scotland's uplands. Working with Scottish Environment LINK and others, SWLG has been involved in this long campaign for many years and there is now a real opportunity to change the law. The LINK Hilltracks subgroup strongly believes that full planning control is needed to bring greater measures of environmental and landscape protection to the hills, as well as a level of public oversight of any construction.
To help the campaign, please visit the Scottish Environment LINK campaign page and write to your MSPs asking them to support the amendments put forward by Andy Wightman MSP. You can also read more and write to your MSP via the Scottish Greens campaign page.
