Jones Place on the Osage Highlands
Scotland's leading conservation charity

This is the Url for the above charity.

This group works with archaeology, Caring for Scotland's Buildings, Caring for Scotland's Gardens, Rangers/Naturalist.

There are two centrally based archaeologists and seasonal staff employed at St Kilda and the Mar Lodge Estate, and the Trust encourages high quality research by UK universities.

Caring for Scotland's Buildings
On display inside the buildings is an extraordinary variety of contents, including paintings, furniture, porcelain and silver, often giving an insight to the families who lived there. More ordinary and industrial objects of bygone days can be seen in cottages, folk museums and mills.

Caring for Scotland's Gardens
Scotland is  internationally renowned for its many fine gardens which flourish in the country's varied climate: from the favoured Inverewe Garden on the shores of Loch Ewe and the developing woodland garden at Balmacara to the sheltered model 17th-century terraced garden at Culross, Scotland's garden heritage is second to none.

Caring for Scotland's Countryside
(This is where I spent the most time) Second part of the countryside conservation is the active restoration of lost or damaged communities of plants and landscape features

How is this work achieved?
Our ranger/naturalists are largely responsible for the active management on the ground, but they are dependent on the willing contribution of our Conservation Volunteers. Practical work is underpinned by knowledge gained through survey and monitoring - here, our rangers are helped by the Trust's Nature Conservation Adviser and his contract staff.

Ranger and Naturalist Service
The first Trust rangers were appointed in 1969, with funding from the Countryside Commission for Scotland. At first the job was largely interpretative, but later developed into the field of nature and landscape conservation, attracting financial support from the then Nature Conservancy Council.
