LNHG is an active and friendly local natural history group based within the Lorn region of Argyll. We hold regular walks, talks and events for our members and the public.

Join us for our Saturday field trips, open to members and non-members alike.  Explore new sites and improve your identification skills.

LNHG-icons_13We also hold Monthly talks all year round, normally on the second Tuesday of each month at Seil Island Hall, Ellenabeich.

Lorn Natural History Group is the Biological Records Centre for Main Argyll (vice-county 98) and records, collates and provides data for the region.

Our recording area, VC 98 Main Argyll, covers much of mainland Argyll. We are currently trying to increase the amount of data we have from under-recorded areas.

You can submit your records to us in a wide variety of ways – every record matters! Not sure of your grid reference? – use our grab a grid reference tool.

Find out more about the Scottish Biodiversity List  of flora, fauna and habitats, the EU Habitats Directive and Invasive Non-Native Species.


Species of the Month

Each month we nominate a species for members to look for. You can also look for species from the same month in previous years, as every record helps.


Field Trip Reports

View recent and archived reports of species seen on some of our previous field trips, along with photos.


Photo Gallery

We have built up a collection of photos of local species to help you identify your finds. Browse them by category.
