Ardmolich Forest lies on the South Eastern edge of Loch Moidart, close to the small village of Kinlochmoidart. It is a small outlying forest which lies adjacent to the A861, however, currently there is no roading within the forest to facilitate harvesting operations. This forest is most visible from boats on Loch Moidart and although it is not clearly visible from the public road, the mid-scale backdrop it forms in the local views are an important feature in this rugged rocky landscape. The topography is relatively steep with a Northerly aspect making this a mostly sheltered site. Elevation rises from sea level to 150 metres in the South. Conifer species are dominant and around 60% of the area is defined as an ancient woodland site. Recreational facilities include a small car park, a loop trail and a connection with the Silver Walk core path/ right of way to Shielfoot. The climate is mild, wet and windy and the soils vary from brown earth to rankers through to peaty gleys.
