About the Estate:

Morvern is north east of the island of Mull and although still on the mainland, it is best reached via the Corran-Ardgour ferry which takes just a few minutes to cross Loch Linnhe.

Morvern is one of the rare places in Great Britain that has hardly been touched by the detrimental aspects of modern life. In many ways it represents Scotland as it used to be, both in its flora and fauna and the kindly disposition of its inhabitants.

Most people, if asked, have no idea where Morvern is. Some would have it as the best kept secret in Scotland. Of those who have ventured from the tourist trail a few have discovered Rahoy, and they tend to return again and again to remind themselves just how beautiful it is.

Woodland on Rahoy Estate in Morvern on West Coast fo Scotland

The woodland on the Rahoy Estate peninsula is internationally important and is designated as a site of Special Scientific Interest and proposed Special Area of Conservation. It is described as being "part of the most intact assemblages of ancient woodland in Britain". Because of its position and climate it supports an amazing variety of plant life.

The topography of Rahoy and its surrounding countryside is reflected in the diversity of animal and bird populations. From mountain top through native woods to sheltered sea shore with islands and skerries and nearby freshwater lochs

     
Seals basking on the rocks in Loch Teacuis at Rahoy Estate in Morvern West Coast fo Scotland

There are few places in Britain with the opportunities to see such a variety of wildlife including Woodland birds, Pine Martens and Deer, Eagles and birds on the high tops, Otters, Seals, Divers, Waders and occasionally even the enormous Sea Eagles.

Rahoy is a paradise for anyone seeking peace and tranquility close to nature, and has a particular appeal to naturalists, geologists and those interested in the history of the highlands. Here is a wealth of evidence of past habitation and cultivation going back to the Iron Age in the form of a Vitrified Fort just to the west of Rahoy Lodge

With the change in seasons come different attractions. The solitude of the place is very special at any time of the year. Whatever the weather, whatever the season, there is always something to remember and cherish. Spring with the migrant birds coming in and woodland carpeted in wild flowers. The long, lazy days of Summer. The amazing colours of Autumn with stags roaring during the Rut, and Winter can be very special, evoking a real sense of wilderness and the privilege of being far from the madding crowd.

Rahoy is a wonderful centre from which to explore the West Coast.

   

This lovely video showing the tranquility that is Rahoy, with some of it's wildlife, flora and fauna was taken by a guest - Derek Saunders, who has been coming to Rahoy on holiday since 1978. Derek is from the Midlands in England and has been photographing wildlife for many years. Some of his wildlife photos are also on the slideshow.
