We have been the very grateful recipient of funding from Scottish Natural Heritage since we opened the Visitor Centre in 2000. We have annually received between £12-15,000 for the last 6/7 years so the withdrawal of support will leave us with a BIG financial hole to fill in 2018/19.

SNH funding comes from the Scottish Government and they have seen their funding slashed over the past few years, so it is inevitable that grant funding would be hit. The staff and trustees are actively seeking new supporters for our work. Perhaps you have a fundraising idea? Or a contact who may be able to help. Are you thinking of a fresh challenge for 2018? Perhaps we could be organisation who benefits from your sponsorship efforts. We have a just giving page where it is easy to support our work. Thank you.
