Grants for outdoor learning visits

Learn about travel grants to help with the cost of getting to either of Scotland’s National Parks, and locate other sources of funding.

NatureScot no longer offers grants for school grounds improvements. Instead, the Scottish Government funds local authorities directly. However, information on travel grants is available as follows:

National Parks travel grants

Grants are available to cover up to 75% (£200 maximum) of transport costs for educational visits to the National Parks.

Priority is given to:

  • schools and groups which haven’t visited before
  • schools and groups which come from socially disadvantaged areas
  • groups which support young people, ethnic minorities, people with disabilities or those facing economic disadvantage or health inequality
