Invergeldie is an iconic 12,000-acre Scottish Highland estate in a highly accessible and truly spectacular setting. Invergeldie is located in Glen Lednock, to the north west of Crieff and north of the highland line in the county of Perthshire. Renowned for its breathtaking scenery, Invergeldie boasts an incredible hillside and a wealth of natural assets that make it a true treasure of the Scottish Highlands. As you venture northwards through the estate, you’ll be greeted by the majestic peaks of Scotland’s great mountains, creating a truly unforgettable experience.
Invergeldie was previously a traditional sporting estate combining a walked-up grouse moor and deer stalking. The estate continues to hold a thriving farming operation, home to a flock of black face sheep.
Last sold in 1961, the site has, for a number of generations, been the much-loved second home for four generations of the same sporting family. We are delighted and privileged that the family have entrusted Oxygen Conservation with the ongoing custodianship of this spectacular landscape.
"Invergeldie offers us a unique opportunity to restore and enhance these incredible landscapes, habitats and biodiversity. Scaling Conservation for this and future generations."
A wonderfully complex site typical of a landscape managed for sport and to the detriment of wider ecology and biodiversity. Multiple waterbodies within the area are heavily modified and below the standard required for Good Ecological Status. Sensitive sites make up approximately one third of the estate and include areas of land considered by NatureScot as special interest for their flora, fauna, geology or geomorphology. The opportunities to enhance this vast landscape based on historical management practices, ecological potential and existing sensitivities are considerable and will help to Scale Conservation.
Under our custodianship we intend to restore significant areas of peatland and plant large areas of native broadleaf woodland. Amongst these areas, the farm will transition to an organic, regenerative system that complements and enhances the natural environment.
We will deliver genuine landscape level restoration of natural processes, reintroduction of lost herbivores and maybe one day even apex predators, wind over canopy renewable energy generation, the planting of woodland trees and the complete restoration of extensive areas of peatland and wetland.
We recognise that the estate, and the natural environment, is an asset to the local community and we will continue to welcome locals and visitors to Invergeldie, to walk the hills, learn more about the wildlife and connect with nature.
We hope each of these visitors will be inspired by the natural world and in their own way become an activist for the environment and a more sustainable future.
In addition to the plans for the land we will be renovating residential properties that provide valuable homes within this wonderful rural community as well as looking to create new homes and businesses that are based at Invergeldie to act as a catalyst for green growth in the rural economy.
