Assynt, situated on the west coast of Scotland is home to stunning scenery and wildlife

Welcome to Assynt Field Club

This website has been developed by Assynt Field Club to showcase the great variety of wildlife, plants and fungi which have been and are constantly being recorded in the parish of Assynt located in south-west Sutherland in the Highlands of Scotland.

No matter where your interest lies Assynt cannot fail to please both the casual and more determined observer; if you are travelling the NC500, which comes through Assynt, it is well worth taking the time to explore the area and discover some of its wildlife.

We record and document a large number of animal, plant and fungi sightings each year to inform our members, local residents and the very many visitors to this marvellous location in the Scottish Highlands.
