The Nevis Partnership is company limited by guarantee and a Scottish registered charity. We work in partnership with local, national, and international organisations, goverment bodies, and landowners to conserve and enhance the incredible landscape of Ben and Glen Nevis. A collective response to land management is the only way large-scale challenges like climate change, sustainability and community resilience can be met effectively in the long-term. The company has fifteen members that set the strategic direction of the Partnership of which twelve have chosen to nominate directors to the board.

The Chairman of the board is Mike Pescod. The board meets once every three months in Fort William. In addition to the directors, members may send representatives to the board meetings.

In 2014, we began a large scale programme funded by the Heritage Lottery to deliver 19 different projects over the course of 5 years in the form of the Nevis Landscape Partnership. We have now finished that programme and looking to the future to continue our work, conserving and enhancing Ben and Glen Nevis.
In addition to the main board there is an Executive Committee who meet regularly to make decisions on behalf of the Board - who only meet quarterly.
