A site on the west coast of Scotland at Loch Sween. The precise location recommended to the Society as being 'well fitted' for the purpose of a nature reserve was the Oib peninsula projecting into Loch Sween. Particular note was made of its marine life. Today, the whole of the Loch falls under the Argyll and Outer Hebrides National Scenic Area (NSA), while the land is protected as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC; European designation). Taynish National Nature Reserve (NNR) is also on the west side of the Loch. Oak woodlands, dripping with mosses and lichens, cover the land, their clearings filled with butterflies and dragonflies, and otters live on the Loch.
