The Lochaber Natural History Society exists to promote interest in the study of our natural environment, as well as raising awareness and understanding, focussing especially on Lochaber and its surroundings, but also looking more widely across Scotland and beyond.

The scope of the Society’s interests includes all aspects of biodiversity – fauna, flora and habitats, from mountain top to seabed – as well as geology and other aspects of natural history, with a particular emphasis on conservation.

Lochaber is an outstanding area for natural history and a description of some highlights can also be read on the Articles page.

The Society is run by a committee of volunteers. Our principle activities are a programme of illustrated lectures and occasional field meetings, but it is hoped to increase our recording activity in future years.

The Society was founded in 1969 by Jim Rowbottom and his wife Tina. Jim, who died early last year, was chairman from 1969 to 2005 and a recent brief tribute to him can be seen on the Articles page.

LNHS is a member of the Lochaber Biodiversity Group, and contributed to the Local Biodiversity Action Plan ‘Living Lochaber’ which can be seen here http://www.highlandbiodiversity.com/htm/counties/lochaber/lochaber.php
