Nature Centres & Reserves

Near, Tayvallich, Lochgilphead, PA31 8PJ

    Taynish is an ancient deciduous woodland and is one of the largest in Britain.

    The oak woodlands of Taynish are interspersed with grassland, heath, salt marsh and shoreline to give a variety of wildlife. Admire the springtime carpet of wildflowers or search out evidence left by a secretive otter as it slips through the wood.

    On a June day the woodland edge gives visitors a good chance of seeing the delicate dance of the rare marsh fritillary or the metallic flash of a passing dragonfly.

    There is a small car park, which can accommodate ten cars, and cycle rack at the south end of the reserve track.
