Forestry Commission Scotland is currently selling Glenan Wood and we are working to acquire it for the community. We aim to preserve the unique habitat and encourage everyone to explore and enjoy the woodland. We are working closely with Kilfinan Community Forest. We are a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation no:  SC047803.

 

The woodland

Glenan Wood is 146 hectares of ancient woodland on ‘Argyll’s Secret Coast’ on the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll, Scotland. Sections of the woodland are marked on maps dating 1750 and 1860. The unique habitat is rich in flora and fauna. Adders, otters, bats, deer, pine martens and water voles all make their homes here, as do night jars, cuckoos, wood warblers and owls. Rare lichens, moss, ferns and wild flowers thrive. The woodland has a rich heritage too, with a deserted settlement deep in the wood.
