UK’s Largest National Nature Reserve
‘The Great Trossachs Forest’ has been announced as the UK’s newest and largest National Nature Reserve (NNR). Scotland’s newest reserve covers 16,500 hectares, with a variety of wildlife, habitats and landforms, including some of national or international importance such as ancient woodland, wet woodland and upland wood pasture. Wildlife in the ‘Great Trossachs Forest’ includes black grouse, golden eagle, osprey, pine martens, red squirrels, water vole and otters.
Scotland’s newest reserve covers a swathe of land from Inversnaid on the east bank of Loch Lomond, through Loch Katrine and Glen Finglas, and almost as far as Callander. We at Loch Katrine are delighted to be part of this stunning location, which offers outstanding woodland, and a host of attractions for visitors to experience, savour and enjoy.
