Ownership Boundaries

The property comprises of two main areas, Glencoe and Dalness, and together they cover 5680 hectares. (Click here for a map).

The property was acquired in several stages, starting with Clachaig, Achtriochtan and Strone in 1936, and followed by part of Dalness in 1937, which include the whole of the south side of Glencoe east to Buachaille Etive More.  Achnacon and Meall Mor followed in 1973, An Torr in 1993, and finally the former Forestry Commission Scotland campsite at Inverrigan in 1995.

The 1936 and 1937 acquisitions were primarily as a result of financial support from the Scottish Mountaineering Club, and in particular from an anonymous donor, later to be revealed to be its president, Percy Unna. Unna’s wishes for future management of the property have become known as the Unna Principles, providing guidance for the National Trust for Scotland in the management of Glencoe and other mountainous properties in its care, now enshrined in the NTS’ Wild Land Policy.
