The John Muir Trust (JMT) has revealed a total of £15,000 has been raised for its causes through a pre-Christmas programme.
Named the Big Give, the December campaign has now closed to donations, with the trust revealing the Reed Foundations and its sponsors doubled the money offered up by individuals.
A number of projects will be helped by the cash, which in turn will benefit those wearing walking boots
visiting the areas where conservation work can be continued.
These include the Sandwood Footpath Appeal, designed to help restore the damaged route across the Sandwood Estate in Sutherland, which is owned by the JMT and leads to "reputedly the most remote beach on mainland Britain".
Other causes include a campaign for greater protection of wild land and biodiversity schemes.
Work undertaken by the JMT this year included the repair of the Steall Bridge, a wire structure allowing walkers to cross the Waters of Nevis and access the Munros of the Mamores range near Fort William.
