"Words can't describe how brilliant it was. I'd love to see the glen in 250 years; I'm so glad to be a link in the chain."
Glen Strathfarrar is a hidden gem that stretches from the wooded river flats of Strathglass westwards into snow-capped mountains. Native forest rivalling that of the better known Glen Affric clothes the lower slopes, with large areas of Scots pine and some fine old oak and aspen stands; above there are extensive areas of open heath. The glen is designated at UK and European levels for its natural interest and stunning landscape.
Glen Strathfarrar is home to Scottish crossbills and crested tits and is a great place for spotting the magnificent golden eagle. It is one of the few sites in the UK that has a resident breeding population of whooper swans. Red deer are abundant in the glen, charismatic pine martens live in the forested areas and otters are also present.
