main image Ben Attow, Inverness-shire
The estate of which Ben Attow (or Fhada) is part was bought by the National Trust for Scotland, in 1944. It is one of the earliest examples of land being brought into public ownership in order to preserve it as wild land.

The mountaineer and philanthropist Percy Unna was the key figure behind the purchase of a large part of Glencoe, in 1937. At the same time he wrote the ‘Unna rules’ for the preservation of landscape and natural habitats, which are still a factor in the consideration of how to preserve the Scottish environment.
