The Nevis Partnership is a Scottish charity formed in 2002 with the intent to guide future policies and actions to safeguard, manage, and where appropriate, enhance the environmental qualities and opportunities for visitor enjoyment and appreciation of the Nevis area. We work within Ben and Glen Nevis in partnership with a range of local, national, and international organisations and businesses to maintain the paths and visitor facilities, conserve habitats and ecosystems for wildlife, and plant trees to regenerate native woodland. If you would like to learn more about the work we have been doing, please visit our website.
