Glen Affric is one of the most beautiful places in Scotland. It’s a classic landscape of perfectly-placed lochs, mountains and a wonderful mix of pine, birch and oak trees.

The woodland is one of the best examples of the Caledonian Forest that once covered much of Scotland. The rich environment is an important haven for wildlife, so the whole glen is protected as a National Nature Reserve.
