Rassal Ashwood

Nature Centres & Reserves

    Rassal Ashwood is a woodland which grows on a rare outcrop of limestone in Wester Ross.

    With silver-grey ash trees and green grassy terraces, Rassal stands out from the surrounding dark heather moors and rugged mountains. Its lime-rich soil supports an unusual mix of plants, and provided rich wood pasture for the livestock of earlier generations. Rare butterflies and dragonflies flit through patches of summer sunshine, while the trees provide shelter for migrating birds.

    Facilities include roadside parking, interpretive panel and woodland walk.
