The West Sutherland DMG area features many designations, with SSSI (Sites of Special Scientific Interest), SAC (Special Areas of Conservation), and SPA (Special Protected Areas) covering a proportion. It also sits within Assynt-Coigach National Scenic Area and North-West Sutherland National Scenic Area. The greater part of this area is comprised of blanket bog and dwarf shrub heath, which are internationally important both for carbon storage and for the rich diversity of bird life which they support.
