Squirrels are unkown in Morvern

I NOTED a report in The Oban Times of March 22, 2018, that Trees for Life plan to ‘help red squirrels return to Morvern’.

Interesting, as there are no records of squirrels having been in the parish before. There must have been a very good reason as they used to be found across Loch Sunart in nearby Ardnamurchan.

The only reference I have for squirrels in Morvern is a negative one. It appears in a letter dated March 4, 1889, from Walter Elliott, the manager of Ardtornish estate (1852- 1906), in reply to a well-known Scottish naturalist, in which he writes that squirrels had never been seen at Ardtornish, as far as he could learn.
