Introduction

Raasay and Rona lie between Skye and the mainland of Scotland in Watsonian vice-county 104 (North Ebudes).

This website is the result of a number of years' work mapping vascular plants on Raasay at the one-kilometre square scale.  Added to that are records for Rona at the 10 km square level.  Recently, tetrad (2 x 2 km square) mapping has been started on Rona, but these results are not currently included as the work is far from complete.

If you want to see images of many of the plants listed here, I suggest West Highland Flora, an excellent website by Carl Farmer.
