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.
