The sight of a huge golden eagle soaring high above the moors and peaks has long been associated with Scotland’s rugged mountains and remote glens.

We are fortunate to have breeding eagles within The Great Trossachs Forest area, and the work we are doing here is helping to secure their future in this part of Scotland.

The golden eagle prefers open, treeless areas to lowland woods. Golden eagles are sensitive to human disturbance and build their nests in remote, inaccessible places. Their territories range in size from 5 to 150 square km.
