Autumn Leaves

Plants, Insects and Fungi

Plants, insects and fungi exist in amazing variety in the glen. Spring is host to a carpet of spring flowers while late summer and autumn enjoy all kinds of fungi of many shapes and sizes, both edible and deadly poisonous.

As a result of very few chemicals being used on the farms in the area, insects abound including some rare moths including the Rannoch Looper, Kentish Glory and Rannoch Brindled Beauty.

Check out the Rannoch Natural History website which is being constantly updated and includes some fascinating information.
