Torran was acquired by Forestry and Land Scotland in 2019, and is situated between Salachry Forest block and Inverliever Forest block, West Loch Awe, Argyll. It totals 575Ha and includes open hill tops, riparian corridors, priority habitats and native broadleaves.

There are various heritage features including Dun Dubh sitting at 310m above sea level overlooking Ford, and Dun Toiseach, Scheduled Monument. Forestry and Land Scotland propose to create a mix of broadleaved woodland, productive conifer forest and open hill tops, as well as protect and enhance priority habitats and riparian corridors.
