WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF NATIONAL PARKS?

We are committed to investigating issues and reporting the outcomes

The Scottish Campaign for National Parks (SCNP) strives to promote and undertake studies into issues affecting the conservation, enjoyment and social and economic welfare of nationally outstanding natural, cultural and scenic heritage sites.

We have produced the following reports highlighting the relevant outcomes of these studies.

Still Unfinished Business Five Years On

Still ‘Unfinished Business’

Five years ago, in April 2013, SCNP and APRS launched our landmark report ‘Unfinished Business’. This called for the designating of more National Parks in Scotland, and proposed seven areas worthy of this accolade. Five years on Scotland still has only two National Parks, so this is Still ‘Unfinished Business’.

Support For Farming In National Parks

National Parks care for the special qualities of an area’s landscape – the natural and cultural heritage of places and people. That is why Park Authorities put great effort into supporting environmentally sensitive farming practices in their areas.
