Discover Glen Affric United Kingdom

The ribbon-shaped terrain of the Glen Affric reserve is as varied as it is beautiful. With the River Affric cutting through its centre, the glen provides the natural habitat for land and water creatures, the latter of which include otters and black-throated divers.

To the west, a more oceanic climate makes for a boggy terrain, framed by the vivid backdrop of the mountains of Kintail. The region also features moorland, which attracts the larger members of the bird family, including hunting eagles. Of the glen's 272 flowering plant and fern species, the rarer of these are found in its eastern lowlands, where the pinewood surroundings are dotted with creeping lady's tresses, among others.
