Knockan Crag holds the key to an amazing story of colliding continents and scientific intrigue. The low cliff of Knockan exposes rocks that set the scientific world ablaze in the 19th century and here, you can see for yourself the marvel that allowed one of the world’s greatest geological mysteries to be solved. Explore the reserve through the Rock Room, Rock trails and art – or if you are looking to explore further, why not follow the Rock Route through the North West Highlands? There are three trails to choose from, catering for different abilities and all of which provide fantastic views over the rugged mountains and glittering lochs of this spectacular landscape.
