Cormonachan Woodland Association

The woodlands are Atlantic oak woodlands with areas of old coppiced hazel probably from 70 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 in 2006, 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 woods 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.

This is joint woodlands project started in 1997, with co-operation between Ardroy Outdoor Education Centre, Lochgoilhead Primary School, Lochgoil Community Trust and Forest Enterprise, who own the 20-hectare section of the Atlantic Oak Woodlands. 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 as an education resource.
