Annex I habitats that are a primary reason for selection of this site
|91A0 Old sessile oak woods with Ilex and Blechnum in the British Isles|
|This composite site comprises a series of sizeable woodlands around Loch Moidart and on the northern shores of Loch Shiel. Extensive oak Quercus spp. woodland occurs around Loch Moidart, which in places has a diverse flora due to outcrops of basic rock; there is also a rich Atlantic bryophyte and lichen flora. The woods fringing Loch Shiel are similar, but less disturbed by development. This complex is one of a number of sites representing the Mid-west Highlands Atlantic bryophyte zone.|
