|Amat Woods complex includes two Caledonian forest areas, Amat Woods and Alladale Woods, which are representative of the North Central biochemical region. The complex has been selected to represent the northern variation of this geographically wide-ranging region. Although comprising only remnants of a formerly more extensive woodland, the pinewood area is still large. The soils are mainly acidic, although basic flushes are a feature of the wood.|
