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.

ABReC is the Biological Records Centre for vice-county 98, Main Argyll, and records, collates and provides data for the region. We also accept records from other parts of Argyll that have no records centre of their own. There is a separate website for ARBReC. 

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 a sighting to us via the online form on the ARBReC website, or via the ARBReC facebook page, where you can also receive help with your identification.  Every record matters!

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.
