Cashel Forest Trust

On beautiful Loch Lomondside


Cashel has a fascinating history. The RSFS bought the site in 1996 and has brought it back to life.


Read all about our exiting plans for the future. Our new paths are opening soon and a new forest management plan is in preparation.

Monitor Woods

Other mammals

The previous owner reported finding badger setts in several places as well as seeing otters in the Blair Burn, and there have been more recent sightings of both mammals as well as pine marten in the area. Foxes, brown hares, rabbits, moles, field voles, grey squirrels and mink have all been observed or reported as present on the site.

Bats are frequently seen in the vicinity of the farm buildings and the suspicion that they were roosting in part of the roof space necessitated a bat survey prior to demolition of the north-west side of the steading for re-development. The survey report identified four locations of bat activity, two of them roost sites, in the steading and  farmhouse roofs, and led to the incorporation of bat friendly features into the replacement buildings.
