Carn na Caorach appeal



At the north-east edge of Dundreggan lies Carn na Caorach. At 700 acres it will be our biggest exclosure yet.

Carn na Caorach already feels special. There’s something about the light up here. At its height the cairn rises to 610m. Views extend from Glenmoriston over into Glen Affric. From this vantage point we can see the impact of what landscape-scale rewilding could look like. Glens and the tops of mountains now devoid of tree cover will be transformed as we further our mission to see a revitalised wild forest in the Scottish Highlands.

Within the safety of the fence we will plant a new woodland of Scots pine and juniper on the lower, north-facing slopes and higher up, montane specialists like downy willow and dwarf birch. Free from grazing pressure these trees will be able to thrive. We will see plants such as wood cranesbill, globeflower and alpine sowthistle return. As the plants are returned to Carn na Caorach, wildlife will benefit. Pollinating insects, small mammals and birds will begin to repopulate the developing montane habitat.

And people will benefit too. Not only will the area’s biodiversity increase, the developing woodland will eventually lock away carbon dioxide as well as improving the soil’s capacity to retain water with benefits for downstream flood management.

With your help we can continue to return a wild forest to Dundreggan. Please support Trees for Life as we create this new forest which in time will be rich in trees and wildlife for generations to come.
