Can’t Visit? Now you can!

Highland Titles is primarily about conservation, but we also care about community. And not just the local community, though we pump large hundreds of thousands of pounds into the local Glencoe economy. We also care about our community of lairds and one of the things on our mind has always been “How can we make the experience of land ownership better and easier?”.
There will always be some lairds who can never come and visit us and in July 2014 we added a virtual walk through part of the reserve to Googe’s Streetview. So now anyone can take a virtual “Walk in the Woods” and visit the Highland Titles Nature Reserve on the internet. Just click on the picture to get started.
Since then we have had other ideas how to connect you to your land, such as the App. But this is just the start and last week another plan moved forward, high resolution aerial photography. This will also help us identify progress on the progress we make restoring the land to its former wooded glory. It is vital to establish a baseline in order to see what has been acheived. But it will also help everyone to view their piece of Scotland within the context of the whole estate at a much higher resolution that Google can offer.
Our friends at Uavonic have spent a few days with Stewart and the team at Glencoe Wood, with the very latest and best in drone technology, to capture the Nature Reserve in all its majesty. Mountains, woodland, lochs and river. They are right now processing their footage and after a short gestation period, we will be able to show you precisely what we are brewing up for you.
