Sutherland Biodiversity Action Plan

Sutherland is known as "Europe's Last Wilderness"
There is still a lack of research and listings of plants etc available on the Internet and possibly in print.  If you find any good web sites on Sutherland please let us know in order that we can include them on this page.

Highland Biodiversity
Contains the biodiversity plans for each area of the Highlands of Scotland

The North West of the Highlands is the first area of Scotland to be awarded UNESCO-endorsed European Geopark status following an announcement made this morning in Sicily during the European Geoparks Networks annual meeting.   Geopark status has been awarded to the area which encompasses parts of Wester Ross and the whole of North West Sutherland on the basis of its outstanding geology and landscape, the strength of its partnership approach to sustainable economic development and its existing geological interpretation facilities.
