Drummondreach Oak Wood is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Drummondreach Wood is a very diverse woodland of 15 ha, dominated by pedunculate oak quercus robur and downy birch betula pubescens. Other species include rowan, aspen, bird cherry, wych elm, ash and hazel. A small ravine in the centre of the wood has been undisturbed for a long time and supports much ash and hazel, while bird cherry thickets are a feature in wetter areas. Beech was planted at the south-west corner of the site but these are now overmature and decaying quickly.

The ground flora contains an extensive range of species reflecting the rich soils and the diversity of habitats within the woodland. The wood is crossed by numerous small runnels and there is a ravine with steep rock faces which adds to the diversity of the woodland. Noteworthy species include alternateleaved golden-saxifrage, Chrysosplenium alternifolium, birdís-nest orchid Neottia nidus-avis, moschatel Adoxa moschatellina, remote sedge Carex remota and wood millet Milium effusum.
