About John Muir Trust

The John Muir Trust is a leading voice for the UK's wild places. We are dedicated to the conservation, protection and restoration of the UK's wild places, for the benefit of all.

Founded in 1983, we recently celebrated 40 years of caring for some of the finest wild places in the UK, including Ben Nevis, Schiehallion and Sandwood Bay.

What's the future for wild places? Why not come along to our visitor centre to find out! Located in the centre of Pitlochry, in the heart of Highland Perthshire, our visitor centre and gallery is an ideal stop-off if you're passing by on the A9.

The inside space is constructed from native windblown timber.
It features:
• Unique audio journeys whisk you to Sandwood Bay, Ben Nevis, Knoydart and Skye.
• Activities for kids
• The Alan Reece Gallery displays changing works from different artists throughout the year, currently you can enjoy a multimedia exhibition of artwork inspired by 'freedom for wild places' until the 25th May 2024.
• A selection of books, branded products and other merchandise for sale, now also including products from the 'John Muir Way'.
