Stewardship

We take our responsibilities very seriously, to manage the estates for their own and the community's benefit, whilst securing them – and the wildlife and commercial enterprises they support – for future generations.

Wilderness

The north-east of Scotland, the Grampian highlands, is an unspoilt quintessential wilderness. Our aim is to keep it just as nature intended it. In an increasingly urbanising world, the Fasque & Glendye Estates represent isolation, freedom and beauty, where a diversity of indigenous flora and fauna can flourish and nature’s natural balance is carefully protected.

 

Across the Fasque & Glendye Estates it is possible to sight golden eagle, osprey, black and red grouse, ptarmigan, kestrel, buzzard, red deer and red squirrel in their natural habitat. In winter, when the hills are thick with snow, it is possible to follow the footprints of native wildlife. We have identified 16 different types of heather on the moorland and native caledonian forestry – birch, rowan, alder, juniper, Scots pine – is constantly encouraged to regenerate, with supplementary planting where possible. It is our responsibility to protect, preserve and encourage the diverse indigenous species of flora and fauna which exist in the Scottish highlands.
