As a new Scottish landowner, we welcome you to visit your land whenever you wish. Feel free to visit the nature reserve with your friends and stay a while. In summer, the riverbank is the perfect spot for a picnic and from the top of the hill the views are breathtaking.
The land is yours to use however you wish
If you have purchased a 100 sq.ft. or larger plot feel free to camp anywhere on the Estate, but please follow the country code and leave no litter. Please also remember that the river fishing is private (although you may fish in Loch Linnhe), and it is illegal to pick wild flowers.
Your Highland Titles plot is located in Glencoe Wood, a part of the Keil Estate which is about 15 miles southwest of Glencoe, in the Scottish Highlands. Visit your land and take a step back in time. Why not enjoy a picnic with fantastic views across Loch Linnhe, or on the riverbank.
Leave your vehicle and follow the clear signposts which will lead you on the short walk along an estate track that leads to your land. Full driving directions, parking instructions, walking instructions and maps are included in your document pack. Should you require help in finding your plot, we may be able to help you.
The address of the Glencoe Wood Nature Reserve is:
If you are traveling from Glencoe, take the A828 south to Duror Village. About a mile beyond the small right hand turning to Cuil the road crosses the Salachan Burn and the entrance to the Highland Titles Nature Reserve is on the left just before the bridge over the burn.
You can take a virtual drive along the road by Glencoe Wood and the Keil Estate. Starting from here in the picture below, drive forwards (north) along the A828 and Glencoe Wood is on your right in a few hundred yards. The Highland Titles Nature Reserve extends for a mile along the road.
When you visit your estate, remember that there is a great deal else to discover in Glencoe. It is truly a destination for all seasons and to get the best out of the time you spend in Glencoe, first visit www.discoverglencoe.com for some of the best things to see and do Scotland has to offer.

All of our plots are situated north east of the Salachan Burn, a beautiful, small, fast flowing salmon river and the walk in from the road starts along the north bank of this river. All plots of the same size are grouped together. You may choose from 1 sqft (A Plot), 10 sqft (B Plot), 100 sqft (C Plot) and 1,000 sqft (D Plot). See map on the right of this text (click here to view larger). Most of these plots are woodland, some are densely wooded but most are areas of replanting and regeneration. The conservation area is magnificent mixed oak and birchwood and we invite all Lairds and Ladies to walk freely in this area and enjoy the atmosphere. Tread lightly please, do no damage and take your litter home with you.
The Plot Locator map will enable you to get to the approximate location of your estate. Because it is impractical to stake each plot, you will require a GPS to get the last few metres to the exact location of your estate. Simply set your GPS to find the Latitude and Longitude of your Plot which you will be given when you make your purchase.
If you wish to have a map when you visit your plot, we recommend you take the Ordnance Survey Landranger Oban & East Mull Sheet 49.
The summer is my favourite time of the year for taking a walk in the woods. The number of visitors to the Highland Titles Nature Reserve rises over the months June, July and August. For those who are interested in meeting us, and having some company on your walk, we have for several years now organised a few dates when you can take part in a guided walk around the woods.
There will be a lot to see, though if you are hoping to see deer, or a fox or badger you will be better served visiting on your own very early in the morning. But we can guarantee that there are many different kinds of trees to see, including downy and silver birch, willow, rowan, hawthorn, oak, alder, holly and willow. The Salachan burn runs through Glencoe Wood and Salachan is derived from the Gaelic for “willow”. In summer you’ll see many wildflowers. Note the lichens on the rocks and trees, which tell us that the air here is clean.
To join our volunteer led walk, and identify native trees, take a look at how our “Badger-Cam” works, hunt for your plot and get a breath of fresh air, please let us know that you plan to join us.
If you prefer to simply turn up on the day you will be very welcome. To give us an idea of numbers, it is helpful if you book.
For several years now Highland Titles have offered free guided walks at weekends, which have proved very successful. Now local Ballachulish resident, Stewart Borland, has been persuaded to make himself available to meet visitors to the Nature Reserve. During the summer months, Stewart can often be found at the Nature Reserve car park (Set your GPS for [56.627174,-5.311716]), but may well be briefly absent when he accompanies visitors onto the reserve. At any time of the year, if you wish to meet up with Stewart, please contact us so we can put you in touch with Stewart. It may be possible to meet up with him so that you can visit the Nature Reserve together.
If you have stopped off in Glencoe and visited the Ballachulish Visitor Centre and Quarry Cafe, you may well have met Stewart, who used to work there (but no longer!). Stewart has been active in the community since he moved here from Glasgow many years ago!
The success of Highland Titles depends on the support of people of Stewart’s calibre. He joins a small but growing band of local activists who care about this very special Scottish community and we hope you enjoy meeting him as much as we do.
