The scientific monitoring period of the Scottish Beaver Trial came to an end in May 2014. In June 2015, Scottish Natural Heritage published the Beavers in Scotland Report.

On 24 November 2016, the Scottish Government made the landmark announcement that beavers are to remain in Scotland. For more information, please read the joint press release issued by RZSS and the Scottish Wildlife Trust.

FAQ: What else is there to do in the area?

The countryside surrounding Knapdale Forest makes up an exceptionally beautiful area of Scotland. As well as breathtaking scenery, this area is one of the best places in the country for looking at archaeological remains. Dolphins can be spotted along the coastline and one of only five canals in Scotland is here, the Crinan Canal, which has an interesting historic role.
