Scottish Fire and Rescue have issued a fire risk warning from 17-20 April. We strongly advise against having fires or barbecues when out in the National Park during this period.Close alert
Traveling can be expensive. To help schools and groups experience the great outdoors in the National Park we are offering an Educational Travel Grant, covering up to 75% of total transport costs, up to a maximum award of £200, based on the number of funding criteria met.
Due to limited funds grant payments will be limited to one grant award per school/group in any one financial year. Payments will be capped depending on overall funding availability.
A few simple criteria need to be met in order for funding to be awarded:
Priority will be given to schools and groups from areas of multiple deprivation and those who have not visited the National Park (or worked with the Ranger Service) previously.
Applicants must provide a short report of their trip (including pre and post visit): summarising activities undertaken, what they have learned about the National Park, and where possible, include photographs (with permissions for National Park Authority use).
