Cormonachan Project

This joint woodland project started in 1997, with co-operation between Ardroy Outdoor Education Centre, Lochgoil Community Trust, Lochgoil Primary School and Forest Enterprise who own the original 20.3-hectare (50.2 acres) northern section of Atlantic Oak Woodlands. Formal agreement was reached with Forest Enterprise for the partnership to be responsible for managing the woodlands to improve their bio-diversity and also to develop them as an education resource.

The Broad Aims of the Project are to: -

  • Manage the Atlantic Oak Woodland in a way that enhances the variety of habitats.
  • Develop the area as an education resource for teaching environmental concepts, introducing people to traditional woodland crafts.Help people appreciate the ‘magic’ of woodlands.

The woods are accessed from G.R. NS 196 975.

Argyll & Islands Enterprise (A.I.E.) provided funding for both stage 1 and 2 of the project.
