As one of the largest remaining intact raised bogs in Britain, Flanders Moss is a wild and ancient landscape. It has hardly changed for thousands of years.

The surface of the moss is a mosaic of sphagnum mosses and other specialist plants and animals, adapted to a land that is mostly water. You can hear the blast of birdsong in spring, see basking lizards in summer or watch the geese arrive in winter. Flanders Moss in worth a visit at any time of year.

Looking for ideas for a visit:

Enjoy panoramic views over a vast expanse of bog from our viewing tower.

Get up close to see unusual plants and colourful wildlife.

Explore the peatland habitats on our trail. Look out for adders, Scotland’s only native snake.

Scottish Natural Heritage manage the reserve to protect and enhance the amazing peatland and wildlife found here.
