...here's some context.

We aim to use adventurous outdoor activities to show you God’s beauty and give you an opportunity to consider His significance.

Spending time in nature can be so good for your health, both physically and mentally. We believe this is because God created the world and by connecting with his creation we are drawn closer to him. You may not agree with this and that’s okay but check out what mind.org.uk, one of the UK leaders in advice and support for anyone experiencing a mental health problem, has to say.

"Spending time in nature can be so good for your health, both physically and mentally."

Spending time in green space or bringing nature into your everyday life can benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing. It can:

-improve your mood

-reduce feelings of stress and anger

-improve your physical health

-improve your confidence and self-esteem

-reduce loneliness

-help you feel more connected to nature

-help you meet and get to know new people

These are all benefits that we want everyone to be able to access.

We look to achieve this through our Green Pasture Projects. These are our three fundamental targets. Firstly, to make people aware that their mental health matters and to use adventurous outdoor activities to improve it. Secondly, to increase diversity across the hills making outdoor experiences available for everyone and finally, to be involved with and encourage conservation within the Cairngorms National Park.

This is why Lost Sheep Guiding exists.
