Ancient Pine Forest

Glenmore contains some of the best preserved areas of ancient Caledonian Pine Forest in the country. This type of woodland formerly covered much of Scotland but, due to large-scale fellings during the 1st World War and earlier for charcoal, farming and shipbuilding, little of this once vast forest remains.

Only about 80 hectares (197 acres) of this pristine Pine, Juniper and Birch woodland survive in Glenmore, though work to restore another 1000 hectares is well underway through the removal of exotic tree species and encouraging native species to regenerate.

The 'Glen With More' booklet is available at £3.99 from the forest shop providing the history of the Glen.
