Year of Natural Scotland

This has been designated the Year of Natural Scotland - by coincidence we have launched The River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust this year too! The River Nairn is small but has it's share of natural beauty, along with the coastline, the Culbin and the hills to the south.

 Many visitors are quick to praise how lovely Nairn is, and how lucky we are to have a pristine river with all it's wildlife right on our doorstep! Sadly familiarity does often breed contempt, and some locals do not appreciate what's right at their doorstep.  The River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust hope to highlight the importance of preserving and taking pride in our River, keeping it litter free, and protecting the rights of the water birds that inhabit it. There is no doubt an abundance of wildlife attracts and entertains visitors everywhere. 

The trust intends to enhance and preserve this asset feature of Nairn.  Membership is growing daily, with even more eyes to keep a close watch on our wildlife.
