The Glen of the Affric river is an beautiful Scottish Highland strath of native woodland bordering river and loch. Former lands of the Chisholm and Fraser of Lovat clans, it is now home to some of Scotland’s iconic species including capercaillie, osprey, wildcats and otters, as well as a significant hydro-electric scheme.
Glen Affric is also one of the largest ancient Caledonian pine woods in Scotland, and in 2019 a lone elm whose remote location has protected it from Dutch elm disease was named Scotland's Tree of the Year. It is the only one of its kind left in the glen.
