Glenborrodale RSPB Reserve

Follow the way marked trail through the RSPB reserve at Glenborrodale, one of the RSPBs most remote nature reserves and one that affords some amazing views of Loch Sunart.  The walk passes through coastal Atlantic Oak woodland festooned with mosses, lichens and liverworts.  In Spring, listen out for warblers, redstarts and flycatchers in the woodland canopy.  Look out for pearl-bordered fritillaries in the rough grassland in early Summer.  At any time of year, scan for otters along the shores of Loch Sunart and raptors in the hills, as you return along the coastal road.  At the end of your walk, why not pop into the Ardnamurchan Natural History Centre for a welcome cup of tea and cake?
