The Shieling Project

The Shieling Project is a social enterprise working with teachers and young people to explore the natural and cultural heritage of shieling life and its significance today. Each summer, for a long stretch of our past, young people all over Scotland would play an integral role in taking the livestock up to hill or moorland pastures, camping there in small bothies, learning about the world beyond the village. This is the shieling, our inspiration to look at culture and sustainability past, present and future.
