SCNP’s aims include:
• To protect the established National Parks
• To increase awareness of the parks and their importance to communities across Scotland and further afield
• To protect outstanding areas that are appropriate for designation as National Parks or are of sufficient merit to warrant special protection
• To lead and strengthen the National Park movement in Scotland


To achieve these aims we:
• Seek to influence government and government departments by responding to policy consultations
• Meet with the existing Parks, SNH and the Minister for the Environment on a regular basis to discuss matters of mutual interest
• Challenge bad practice
• Work with others to bring the widest possible experience to bear on National Park issues.
