A haven for wildlife
Next door at Shieldaig we have golden eagle, peregrine, red throated diver, greenshank and golden plover. Pine martens, water voles, badgers, red squirrels and mountain hares have also been spotted. If we can improve canopy cover at Couldoran we expect to find many of these species moving in as their range and habitat improves and expands. Wildcats were spotted in the area until the 1960s and according to local knowledge, much more recently than that. Could Couldoran be home again to wildcat?
