Walked round Knapdale forest yesterday and came across some evidence of an ambitious beaver!!
They are only a 15 minute drive away from the cottages.
The Scottish Beaver Trial is a unique and exciting conservation project here in Argyll. Wild beavers have been reintroduced back into Scotland after being extinct in Scotland for over 400 years. It is the first official project of its kind in Britain and a groundbreaking five year study to explore how beavers can enhance and restore natural environments.
The beavers were released into Knapdale Forest in the Heart of Argyll in 2009. They have since been busy settling into their new home; from building lodges to bringing up newborn family members. several beaver families have now been reintroduced and visitors are welcome to explore this stunning woodland and spot the signs of beaver activity.
When you visit Ederline Estate here in Argyll this is just one of the many wildlife experiences just minutes from our self catering cottages.
