To experience one of Britain’s largest woodlands, visit the ancient oak woodland of Taynish. Interspersed with grassland, heath, salt marsh and shoreline, a great variety of wildlife can be spotted here. Admire the springtime carpet of wildflowers or search out evidence left by a secretive otter as it slips through the wood.
Around Loch Sunart lies some of the finest temperate oakwoods in the British Isles - the Sunart Oakwood, remnants of a formerly much more extensive band of coastal woodland. Home to some of the best collections of lower plants in the whole of Europe, you’re guaranteed to encounter plenty of diverse wildlife.
If you're planning a great day out for the whole family, or should you be looking for a place for outdoor activities, pay Knapdale Forest a visit. Surrounded by the National Scenic Area, the forest partially borders with the Crinan Canal as well as the Sound of Jura and Loch Sween. Uncover the fabulous range of routes, trails, cycle routes and picnic sites through the forest, which are situated close together, and have a fantastic day with nature.
