Lochaber Geopark encompasses an area of 4,468Km2, including the Small Isles (Rum, Muck, Eigg and Canna) and is renowned for its spectacular scenery. It is this landscape that makes Lochaber Geopark the ultimate playground sculpted by nature.

The region is famous for its outdoor adventure activities, climbing, skiing and biking to name but a few. But it also has some of the most diverse wildlife in the UK, and one of the most complex, interesting and significant geological histories of any area.

Lochaber Geopark aims to bring these aspects to the fore, by providing interpretation panels through out the region, creating routes and information guides for the area that let visitors understand the landscape they see along their journey, and through our Visitors Centres.

We also play a role in protecting rare places in the area such as SSSI's (Sights of Special Scientific Interest), and encouraging local business to work together so as to better the economy and standard of living in the area.
