The Loch Arkaig pinewoods are one of only 38 'Caledonian Pinewood Inventory' sites in Scotland, these are known to have persisted on the same site since the earliest maps were produced in the 1600's, and may represent the last remnants of truly natural Scots Pine woodland in the UK. We aim to help restore and expand these native woodland habitats and to improve the ecological, economic and social value of the woods, bringing multiple gains to the area, preserving and enhancing these woodlands for public benefit and reconnecting people with the land.Read more...
