360° Scottish beaver trail
For the first time in over 400 years the forests of Argyll are now home to the Eurasian beaver, which has been successfully reintroduced to Scotland.
Join us on a 360° loch-side walk in Knapdale to look for signs of beavers and learn how their activities bring benefits to the habitats they live in.
