Visit a Farm

The best way to learn about the countryside and what farmers are delivering for us all, is to visit for yourself or to learn about it from someone who lives and works in the countryside.

The Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) is an educational charity, established in 1999.

RHET aims to create the opportunity for each child in Scotland to learn about the countryside and to ensure a wider understanding of the environmental, economic and social realities of the countryside in Scotland.

Their key activities include farm visits, farmer speakers and resource production.

Why not speak to your school about getting in contact with RHET to arrange for the class to visit the countryside or perhaps invite a farmer to come to the school and speak to the children about the countryside and about farming?

Visit the RHET website on www.rhet.org.uk or call them on 0131 335 6227. For full details of the Outdoor Access Code, visit www.outdooraccess-scotland.com.
