NORTH EAST MOUNTAIN TRUST - Aims
A Quality Future for Mountaineers and
The North East Mountain Trust is an association of climbers and
hill walkers in north east Scotland. It is a recognised charity
whose main aim is to conserve the environment of the hills of
north east Scotland for the benefit of the public wishing to take
recreation there, both now and in the future.
- The Trust resists inappropriate skiing development in
sensitive areas, particularly where it damages landscape
quality, restricts access and disturbs wildlife.
- We campaign for the protection of our native pine forests and
support action to control red deer populations which prevent
their regeneration. We encourage forestry management which is
sensitive to Scotland's unique landscape and wildlife heritage.
- Rights of Way
- The Trust works to preserve the network of paths and rights of
way and supports management measures which help limit footpath
- Bulldozed Tracks
- We are totally opposed to the proliferation of bulldozed hill
tracks so often a blight on the landscape and which contribute
to the problems of soil erosion. We favour enforcement of
existing legislation which limits the use of motorised vehicles
in the hills.
- Sea Cliffs
- The North East sea cliffs are a valuable recreational amenity
which should not be despoiled by quarrying and dumping. The
Trust aims to ensure that access is unimpeded, especially to
traditional climbing areas.
