Scottish Natural Heritage
Welcome to South Highland
Our area encompasses the core of the Highlands, stretching from the Minch in the west, to the Moray firth in the east. From west coast sea lochs and the islands of Skye, Rum and the other small isles, to the tops of Scotland's highest mountains, it's home to some of our most special wildlife and landscapes. Most of the population of the Highlands live here, from urban centres like Inverness and it's hinterland to the remote coasts and straths. Our team are proud to play our part in helping people and nature thrive.
