Here you will find one of the largest surviving native pine woods in the United Kingdom, with nearly 1/3 of the present remaining Scottish area found here.

The ancient Caledonian woodlands are direct descendants of trees that first colonised the Scottish Highlands after the last Ice Age 8-10,000 years ago. Centuries of destruction by felling, damage by fire, and grazing by deer and sheep all have reduced the ancient Caledonian forest,

The Forestry Commission purchased Glen Affric in 1951. Since then, positive conservation has rescued the core of the woodland. In 1994, Glen Affric was designated a Caledonian Forest Reserve of over 9000 hectares.

Further recognition of the importance of this special environment came in 2001 with the designation of Glen Affric as a National Nature Reserve.

The Caledonian forest have specific species only found here like the crested tit, Scottish crossbill and wryneck, the Capercaillie are still present but have become extremely rare and are seldom seen, along with the wild cat wild, The red, roe, Sika deer, black grouse, golden eagle, badger, pine marten and otter or more likely to be seen.
