A Pitlochry-based charity is offering the chance to “buy” a slice of three iconic mountains, including one in Perthshire, for just £25.
The John Muir Trust is offering the Adopt an Acre scheme on Schiehallion, Ben Nevis and Skye’s Blà Bheinn.
It’s hoped the programme could raise almost £500,000 and the organisation will use the cash to help support its conservation work.
Each new “landowner” will receive a pack with an adoption certificate, personalised message, and information about the conservation work being undertaken in their name.
If buyers decide to adopt two or more acres, they’ll also get a professional print of their chosen mountain.
The money generated will be used to improve the habitat for wildlife and plants as well as native woodland restoration.
Daisy Clark of the John Muir Trust said: “The Adopt an Acre gift pack makes an ideal Christmas present for nature lovers, walkers or anyone who loves the outdoors.
“Each gift will care for an acre of mountain landscape for a year, helping to protect and restore native habitats for wildlife and plants, and keep paths in tip-top condition.”
Schiehallion, which means “Fairy Hill of the Caledonians”, covers over 2,000 acres and stands at 1,083 m (3553 ft.).
