Not so long ago vibrant, wild forest stretched across much of Scotland. Beavers and cranes were at home in extensive wetlands. Salmon and trout filled the rivers. Lynx, wolf and wild boar roamed wooded glades. Today, it’s easy to be seduced by the raw beauty of the Scottish landscape, but it is sadly an ecological shadow of its former self.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Join conservation photographer Peter Cairns, who leads the call for a new vision of a wilder Scotland, where forests abundant with life are regenerating, rivers lined with alder and willow run freely, damaged peatlands are revitalised and oceans support the great whales: a place where nature works as it should, wildlife flourishes and crucially, where people prosper.
