The remnants of wood pasture across The Great Trossachs Forest are some of the finest upland examples of this habitat remaining in Britain.

Much of this ancient landscape, created by man through traditional grazing, has been lost to farming, commercial forestry and other land uses. Large ancient trees stand surrounded by open ground and scatterings of smaller, younger trees. Mosses and lichens grow on the ageing trees.

While large ancient oaks are often associated with wood pasture, a good range of different tree and shrub species thrive in this environment, attracting many birds and insects.
