The Great Trossachs Forest National Nature Reserve
Set in the heart of the National Park is the UK’s largest National Nature Reserve. The Great Trossachs Forest is a huge landscape-scale woodland restoration project. In the first 10 years of the 200-year project more than 2 million native trees have been planted.
The site stretches from RSPB Scotland’s Inversnaid reserve on the Eastern shores of Loch Lomond across the 9,500 hectare Forestry Commission estate at Loch Katrine, to the ancient hunting forests at Glen Finglas, owned and managed by Woodland Trust Scotland, and beyond.
The wildlife inhabiting The Great Trossachs Forest include black grouse, golden eagle, osprey, pine marten, red squirrel, wild cat, water vole and otter.
