The Scottish Beaver Trial has been responsible for reintroducing beavers 400 years after being hunted to extinction.
In the heart of Argyll lies Knapdale Forest where beavers are thriving since being reintrodcued in 2009. These industrious creatures are a sight to see if you are lucky (and patient) enough to spot one.
A trip to the Scottish Beaver Trial in Knapdale Forest is a great family day out where you can be a beaver detective for the day and look out for signs of beaver activity. Start the day at the Barnluasgan car park where you can learn about the beavers in the Barnluasgan Information Centre. Take to the two hour, three mile trail around Dubh Loch and Loch Collie Bharr.
