Who We Are

The Rahoy Hills Wildlife Reserve is a wild and remote area of hills, moorland and woods on the Morvern peninsula on the west coast of Scotland. It is owned and managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust and Ardtornish and is the most biodiverse of all the Scottish Wildlife Trust’s wildlife reserves. The reserve is an inspiring place with magnificent hills and wild woodlands.

Or is it a human influenced overgrazed landscape influenced by centuries of increasing industrialisation? The residency will allow artists to experience what’s wonderful about this place and benefit from the knowledge and expertise of people who live and work there.
