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.

    Beavers are back in Scotland!

    On 24 November 2016, the Scottish Government made the landmark announcement that beavers are to remain in Scotland. This is the first time that a mammal has been formally reintroduced in UK history.

    The trial population of beavers remains in Knapdale, and the Scottish Beaver partners are now focussing their efforts on re-enforcing this population to ensure its long term future.
