With woodland, wildlife and stunning views, Taynish National Nature Reserve is a secret haven waiting to be discovered. Wander through the peaceful oak woodlands, find the perfect picnic spot by the shore, or catch a glimpse of an otter going about its daily business.
The oak woodlands of Taynish are interspersed with grassland, heath, salt marsh and shoreline, providing a home for a whole host of wildlife. Admire the springtime carpet of wildflowers or catch a glimpse of a shy roe deer prancing through the woods. In summer, the woodland edge gives visitors a good chance of seeing the delicate dance of the rare marsh fritillary or the metallic flash of a passing dragonfly. Through the autumn, the woodland comes alive in a riot of colour, with the vibrant hues of russets, reds and ochres of oak, birch, willow and alder.
There is a small car park, which can accommodate ten cars, and cycle rack at the south end of the reserve track.
