The North West Highlands Geopark contains geology and a landscape of world-class quality, significance and importance. Find out more about how we promote our landscape, share knowledge and ensure conservation for future generations
The North West Highlands Geopark is a community company limited by guarantee and a charity in Scotland. Our Global Geopark hosts a wide range of rock formations covering two-thirds of the Earth’s history. These underpin the landscape which is one of our best assets to help us achieve our vision for the North West Highlands to become:
“a thriving and sustainable rural economy capitalising on the assets and people of the Geopark in partnership with local government, relevant agencies and local businesses”.
Our objective is to be an integral part of the economic and community life of the North West and remain an active and respected member of the European and Global Geopark Networks. Find out about our team and see where we are headed here.
The Geopark Network
We are active members of the European Geopark Network and the Global Geopark Network. Geopark status is a UNESCO endorsed award which acknowledges the high quality of local geological heritage.
