Association for the Protection of Rural Scotland
Scotland's Countryside Champion



APRS is the charity which promotes the care of all of Scotland's rural landscapes

Our aims are to:

  • protect and enhance Scotland's rural landscapes for future generations
  • promote effective planning and landscape protection systems
  • encourage genuinely sustainable development 
  • raise awareness of the importance of Scotland's landscapes to its people and economy
  • promote the activity of land managers who care for Scotland's landscapes

We do this by: 

  • working in partnership with individuals, other charities, local authority, government and public bodies 
  • active involvement in national policy development and advocacy 
  • advising members of the public on how to respond to proposals which affect their local landscapes 
  • publicising our work to our members and beyond through our website, our newsletter Rural Scotland and email bulletins
