The Highland Titles Nature Reserve Story

1992
First tree planted
The first trees were planted at Glencoe Wood in 1992 under a Woodland Grant Scheme ‘Special Management Grant’.
2006
The Highland Titles Nature Reserve is launched
In late 2006 Highland Titles purchased 220 acres of land at Duror, near Glencoe. This land is now known as The Highland Titles Nature Reserve, an official 4* tourist attraction and according to TripAdvisor, the most popular nature reserve in Scotland!
2007
Visitor Centre is built
We needed somewhere to store our tools, nuts for the bird feeders and pigs, as well as somewhere for our volunteers to dry off and have their lunch. The visitor centre was built entirely by volunteer labour and using local materials where practical. Doors and windows were donated and we are very proud our this snug retreat.
2007
We Started Planting Trees!
Reintroducing native trees to the Nature Reserve is an aim of Highland Titles, progress started in 2007.
2008
Five Year Plan is published
Transforming this land into a Nature Reserve was clearly a long-term project and required a Five Year Plan, which was published by Dr Peter Bevis in 2008 and completed in 2013.
2013
A Year of Firsts!
We started work on the first Lochan, planting trees and we gave our first Guided Tours in August 2013.
2014
Nature of Scotland Awards 2014 Nomination
The Glencoe Wood project was nominated for the Nature of Scotland Awards 2014 – an event organised by RSPB Scotland and sponsored by The Crown Estate.
2015
TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence
The popularity of the visitor experience is evident from over 100 5-star Trip Advisor reviews, which resulted in our being awarded the Certificate of Excellence every year since 2015.
2017
More Development at Glencoe
We built our first Wildcat enclosure and added a new Reception area with a small shop for visitors.
2018
A Special Visit..
National Geographic visited our Nature Reserve(!) and our Forever Home for Injured Hedgehogs was built.
2018
Started Creating The Cycle Path
Always wanting to give back to the local community, the introduction of a cycle path through the reserve was a welcome one to give back to the area.
2021
Giving Back To The Forest
We have started felling the non-native Sitka Spruce to replace with native trees to Scotland to replenish the land and wildlife at the Nature Reserves.
