Rahoy Hills

The Rahoy Hills encompass a diverse range of habitats from windswept grasslands, mires and heaths to cliffs, lochans and oak woodlands. Tall herbs and arctic alpines cling to the cliffs and golden eagles soar above the hills.

A path from Black Glen to Arienas Point provides a perfect opportunity for discovering this rugged upland reserve.
