Taynish National Nature Reserve

Visit Taynish National Nature Reserve (NNR)

The peaceful oak woodlands of Taynish are interspersed with grassland, heath, saltmarsh and shoreline to give a truly amazing variety of wildlife. Admire the spring time carpet of wildflowers or search out evidence left by a secretive otter as it slips through the wood. A June day on the woodland edge gives you a good chance of seeing the delicate dance of the rare marsh fritillary or the metallic flash of a passing dragonfly.

Whether you want to walk, birdwatch, explore the trails, look out for wonderful wildlife or interesting insects, there’s something for everyone at Taynish NNR.

For more information read the reserve leaflet or have a look at the NNR website.
