Highland Titles Nature Reserve
The Highland Titles Nature Reserve is owned by Highland Titles and literally thousands of Lairds and Ladies of Glencoe.
Until 1983, Keil Hill formed a part of Keil Farm. Evidence of old field dykes demonstrates that the drier areas were cultivated until fairly recent times. In 1985, with the assistance of a Special Management Grant, considerable commercial planting took place, much of it with the inappropriate softwood species, Sitka and Larch. The low-density hardwood planting which was undertaken at the same time was largely unsuccessful.
Highland Titles are restoring and repairing the area, and have constructed a network of paths, two lochans, and with native tree planting as we remove the non-native Sitka, and as a result, wildlife is responding by returning to the area.
Red squirrels, red fox, red deer & roe deer, badgers, pine martens and even a wildcat are regularly caught on our SpyCameras, as you can see on our Facebook page.
A section of the Glencoe to Oban cycle path now goes through the Reserve too!
