Regeneration: 25 years of ecological restoration at Mar Lodge

Join the John Muir Trust NE Scotland Members’ Group to hear Andrew Painting speak about his new book Regeneration: The Rescue of a Wild Land.

With ancient Caledonian pinewoods, subarctic mountains and rolling bogs and moors, the 30,000-hectare Mar Lodge Estate is home to one of the largest and most ambitious ecological restoration projects in the country. Andrew will chart the story of this remarkable landscape, the people from all walks of life who have joined together to protect it, and the lessons that we can learn from it.

Regeneration is the painfully honest but ultimately inspirational story of the transformation of Mar Lodge by a dedicated team of ecologists, stalkers, rangers and other estate workers. Andrew Painting is an outstanding new nature writer – and someone we will no doubt hear more from in the years to come.” (John Muir Trust Journal)
