About Us

Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Rivers Trust


The aims of the trust are:

  • To conduct research on river management and on native freshwater fish such as salmon and sea trout
  • To conserve and restore these species
  • To improve the habitats of native freshwater fish
  • To provide education and enhance understanding of the river environment and river catchment management.


Our Findhorn, Nairn, and Lossie Catchments Management Plan was developed in 2021 and will have a duration of 5 years. The Plan outlines six priority areas: Climate Crisis, River Habitat and Land Use, Biosecurity and Invasive Non-Native Species, Fish and Fisheries, Marine and Inshore Environment, Education and Publicity.

Within these priorities, the Plan will seek to mitigate the effects of climate crisis through upland restoration. This will include working with landowners to:

  • Plant riparian woodlands to create shading along spawning tributaries to reduce the effects of warming temperatures
  • Block off moorland drains to slow water run off to preserve peatland. This will lead to better water retention and lessen the erosive effects of spates during the wetter rainfall patterns anticipated in the future.

This will complement our ongoing projects and activities.

The Findhorn Nairn and Lossie Rivers Trust currently has two offices at Logie Steading in Dunphail, Forres. Our main office is where our FNLRT staff work out of and is also where our SISI project staff are based. Our second office is just next door and provides a dedicated workspace for our Findhorn Watershed Initiative staff to work from.

We are always happy to welcome drop-ins from the public and if you are interested in finding out more about our work, the rivers and what you can do to help, then please pop passed and say hello.

Logie Steading is a beautiful location and a great day out, with a variety of shops offering a range of goods, a café, gardens and several stunning walks by the river Findhorn.


The Trust looks after all native species, and is concerned with river catchment management on a holistic scale. There are various projects and activities carried out by the Trust which help it to fulfil its aims and objectives. The Trust works closely with local FDSFBs as well as other stakeholders and funding partners to do this.
