Welcome to the Morvern Peninsula
Morvern is a peninsula of hills, woodland and coastline in the west coast of highland Scotland. It is bounded by the Sound of Mull to the south and west, Loch Sunart and Glen Tarbet to the north and Loch Linnie to the east. Morvern’s two main population centres are Drimnin and Lochaline and it also comprises a number of traditional highland estates including Ardtornish Estate, Drimnin Estate, Killundine Estate, Kingairloch Estate, Laudale Estate and Rahoy Estate.
Morvern is home to a number of rare species. Golden Eagles soar above the treetops whilst pine martins scamper through gardens. Otters bask on sunlit rocks up and down our coastline whilst deep under the surface glide flapper skate. There are numerous projects locally to monitor and improve our biodiversity. The Rahoy Nature Reserve is managed in a collaboration between x and the Scottish Wildlife Trust. Caolas (Community Association of Lochs and Sounds) was set up to help increase understanding and conservation of our local marine environment and in recent years have begun a project to reintroduce native oysters back into Lochaline.
