Mountaineering Scotland has a number of policies and posiotion statements which guide our work in the field of conservation.
These range from overarching documents stating our vision for Scotland's mountains and the strategies we will use to achieve or protect that vision, to position statements on development issues such as wind farms and new hill tracks which can affect conservation and mountaineering interests.
Respecting Scotland's Mountains is Mountaineering Scotland's overarching vision for the future of Scotland's mountains and wild lands, underpinned by five key elements.
Mountaineering Scotland will only object to a very small proportion of windfarm proposals. This statement lays down the factors we consider in making a decision.
The unconstrained proliferation of hilltracks - some poorly made and damaging to the landscape - is of concern and is now a campaigning issue.
While we sympathise with the grief and loss that bereaved friends and relatives feel, we believe permanent memorial artefacts should not be a feature of the mountain landscape.
