Dundreggan is a 10,000 acre estate situated in Glen Moriston that contains a remnant of the Caledonian Forest, and is particularly noted for its exceptional birch-juniper woodland. It has been described as a 'lost world of biodiversity', with more than 3,200 species recorded here, including eight that are found nowhere else in the UK. This makes it an important site for biological diversity in Scotland, and as our work to re-wild the Conservation Estate progresses, this importance will continue to increase.

The taxonomic classification of organisms is constantly under revision as new understandings and insights into their relationships are discovered. The data in these lists conforms to that used on the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) Gateway at the time of production.

These lists have been compiled from records submitted by Trees for Life staff and volunteers, as well as local people, visitors and surveyors.

This page will be updated as we complete further taxa.
