Updates and posts to this web site are delayed due to ongoing problems I am having with internet access. This is because of the degradation of the existing phone line infrastructure which it is hoped will be upgraded by the spring of 2017.

Glen Affric National Nature Reserve


I've only managed to survey parts of the eastern area during 2010/2011 and will cover more in 2012 plus parts of the western area.

and is managed by Forestry Commission Scotland

It comprises forest, woodland edge, loch and open land
rising from 100 to over 500 meters elevation.

Dundreggan Estate - Trees for Life

Juniper on Dundreggan Estate

Map 6  below includes existing Dundreggan Estate woodland plus a cross section of Glen Moriston to the south.


I was scheduled to start surveying this area in Autumn 2011 but problems prevented this; so I hope to get over there in 2012.

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
