Rhidorroch Woods complex represents the North biochemical region and is part of a larger mosaic of woodland. Virtually the complete range of woodland types characteristic of the north-west Scottish Highlands is found here, centred on the unmodified Rhidorroch river system and interspersed with areas of heathland, peatland and semi-natural grassland. The diversity of the ground flora reflects the diversity of conditions. Species include serrated wintergreen Orthilia secunda and creeping lady’s-tresses Goodyera repens.
