A small estate in north-east Perthshire consisting of farmland, woodland, wetland and hill. Bamff has a well-established ecotourism accommodation business. The estate is well known for its fascinating beaver project and abundant wildlife, which attracts wildlife enthusiasts and experts throughout the year.
Key rewilding commitments:
- MORE NATIVE WOODLAND: Plant native trees, thorny scrub and wildflowers
- MORE SPACE FOR WATER: Dig ponds and scrapes for wetland birds
- LET NATURE LEAD: Remove non-native species
- REINSTATE NATURAL GRAZING: Replace sheep with native breeds of pigs, cattle and ponies, removing internal livestock fences
"With 18 years of experience with beavers, we aim to be at the forefront of nature recovery in Scotland. Rewilding on a modest budget and working with people – through science, recreation, education and art – to share and communicate the exciting things that happen when nature is set free to flourish again."
