Scottish Wildlife Trust Policy on cremated remains


This is there policy summary:

Scottish Wildlife Trust (SWT) will not permit burials of bodies or ashes on its wildlife reserves. However, SWT is happy to consider the scattering of ashes in a sensitive manner on reserves, and in exceptional circumstances will also consider memorials.

You are supposed to contact the relevant Scottish Wildlife Trust Conservation Manager in the first instance detailing when and where on the reserve who will then check if this is okay and they will let you know.

You are expected to:

  • scattered discreetly,
  • disperse the ashes well
  • steer clear of footpaths and if possible,
  • scatter at a time when few visitors are present

They do also permit memorials in certain circumstances.

I like this policy, sensible and considered – well done the Scottish Wildlife Trust.
