Quinag’s wildlife and history in the spotlight
The John Muir Trust is working with the Assynt Field Club on a project to assemble and make available as much information as possible about the landscape and wildlife of Quinag, funded through the CALLP community grants scheme. They are also looking at the human activities, past and present, that affect them.
Where possible, they plan to summarise the lengthier surveys and add common names to the scientific ones, so that the information is accessible to a wide audience.
The results of this partnership, the Quinag Wildlife Project, will be lodged initially on the Assynt Field Club’s website. Although the CALLP grant only covers part of 2021, it is hoped that work will continue well into the future, concentrating on aspects that have so far received less attention.
