  • The first Knapdale beavers were released in May 2009 and quickly settled into their new surroundings. They were monitored throughout the Trial until the end of the Trial in 2014. in 2016 the Scottish Government decided to allow them to remain in Scotland. There are currently beavers living on Loch Barnluasgan and Loch Coille-Bharr and these are the lochs most easily accessable to visitors The best time to see them swimming around tends to be around dawn and dusk.

    If you would like more infomation about the beavers and would like to go on a guided walk to see the habitats they have created (and possibly one of the beavers) then please contact theHeart Of Argyll Wildlife Organisation.

    There are limited parking facilities around the Trial site. We strongly recommend you make use of the car parks at Barnluasgan or Coille Bharr and explore the site on foot from there. Here you will find a visitor interpretation building where information can be found on the Trial, latest sightings and guidance on making the most of your visit to Knapdale. Please do not leave your vehicle in undesignated fields or lay-bys.
