Cormonachan Woodland Association

The woodlands are 58.9 ha of ancient Atlantic oak woodlands with areas of old coppiced hazel probably from 100 years ago. Much of the area had been under planted with Sitka Spruce by Forest Enterprise. Many of those areas were felled in the late nineties and later to 2018, new planting of oaks, rowan, hazel and Scots pine has taken place.

Rhododendrons and bracken had increased in quantity especially in the northern felled section of the woodlands, however a programme of clearance has reduced much of this in recent years.

Bluebells abound throughout the woodlands along with other woodland plants including; primroses, wild garlic, wood sorrel, lesser celandine, honeysuckle and ferns.

The most important wildlife to reside in these woodlands are red squirrels that are high on the agenda for protection.

The Cormonachan Woodlands Association project commenced in 2015 with co-operation between Ardroy Outdoor Education Centre and Forest Enterprise Scotland, who own the 58.9-hectare section of these ancient Atlantic Oak Woodlands that were originally used by Ardroy from 1998. A new formal agreement was reached with Forest Enterprise for the partnership to be responsible for managing the woodlands to improve their bio-diversity and also to develop them for education, community recreation and conservation.
