Bailies of Bennachie
Registered Charity SC 013298 

Caring for Bennachie and it's Landscape


The Bailies of Bennachie is a voluntary conservation society (SC 013298) whose objectives are to encourage and stimulate the public’s interest of Bennachie. The Bailies work involves helping to maintain footpaths and rights of way and enhance people’s enjoyment  and understanding of Bennachie, by promoting its geology, literature, ballads, poetry, art and music through publications and events. The Bailies also undertake  archaeological investigations and record wildlife seen on the hill. 

Please look at our Bennachie Landscapes Project to see what we are doing and please get involved as we are always looking for help and support!

Our Committee meetings are usually held at the Bennachie Centre on the last Monday of each month. Let us know if you have any matters that you wish us to consider or if you wish to see our minutes.

As a registered charity you can help continue and support the valuable work of the Bailies for an annual membership of £5 ( see membership page), or Volunteer your help or Donate to ongoing projects.



The Bailies have ongoing projects including Bennachie Landscapes Project and monthly work parties start in March (see Volunteering). We have  many interesting Events, see Events Calendar for details.
