Cateran Ecomuseum

Caenlochan Special Area of Conservation

One of the most biodiverse sites in the Ecomuseum

Little Glas Maol and Monega Hill are within the Caenlochan Special Area of Conservation and its floristic richness is of European importance.

It has some of the best examples in the UK of fourteen European habitats, including montane willow scrub and is renowned as one of the most important upland sites in Britain for alpine plants, including lichens and bryophytes.

It is thought to have almost three hundred higher plant species, of which almost one third are described as arctic-alpines.
