Gaining Geopark status means an increased focus on sustainable development at local level and provides an opportunity for local communities to shape that process according to their own needs and circumstances. Download our newsletters and access local resources here.
Ancestors & Archaeology
The landscape of the North West Highlands tells the story of its past peoples, from neolithic times, through those of the celts and the vikings to more recent settlers following the clearances.
Crofting & Fishing
Throughout the Geopark, traditional ways of living and working are very much a part of daily life. The largest centres of population are Lochinver, Kinlochbervie and Durness where crofting and fishing are core to the year round economy.
Nature & Conservation
The Geopark works in partnership with the Highlife Highland Rangers, NatureScot, and The Scottish Wildlife Trust amongst others to promote and protect the biodiversity within its boundaries and beyond.
