Our Partners


Arkaig Community Forest works in partnership with Woodland Trust Scotland.

Loch Arkaig Pine Forest is one of the most significant ancient woodland restoration sites in the UK. The shared ownership of this woodland between Arkaig Community Forest and Woodland Trust was the result of a 2016 community buy-out from Forest Enterprise Scotland.

For the Woodland Trust, it is their largest owned ancient woodland restoration site in Scotland.

Arkaig Community Forest and Woodland Trust share ambitious, far reaching and long-term goals. Together we will carefully and sensitively restore native woodland habitats across the entire forest and demonstrate the ecological, social and economic value of ancient woodland restoration. In particular, we aim to support the remote community living around the forest to benefit from active sustainable forest management activities.

We have a memorandum of understanding which outlines the basis of this partnership.
