Woodland of tranquillity
A rich woodland of native trees blankets the slopes of Glen Nant. Oak, ash, alder and birch each dominate in different parts of the reserve, responding to changes in conditions that we can hardly detect. The woodland provided charcoal for an iron furnace in the past, but now the trees are quietly thriving, with lichens dotting their trunks in colourful patterns. Shy otters slip between the river and the forest, sometimes giving an elusive glimpse into their secret lives.
