Flanders Moss is one of the biggest and best bogs in the UK. It is a huge peatland lying in central Scotland and its size means that it is home to a whole range of rare and special wildlife.
Normally bogs are difficult places to visit but Flanders is easy to get to with a car park, level path and boardwalk and a viewing tower that gives spectacular views across the moss.
NatureScot manage this reserve in partnership with a number of landowners and staff are busy restoring the peatland, monitoring the rare species and introducing the joys of bogs to people. This blog will tell the story of Flanders Moss NNR and let people visit the difficult to reach parts of the site.
Flanders Moss is one of a suite of NNRs in Scotland. Scotland’s NNRs are special places for nature, where some of the best examples of Scotland’s wildlife are managed.
Flanders Moss is managed by NatureScot. Like every NNR it is carefully managed for both nature and people, giving visitors the opportunity to experience our rich natural heritage. The network of trails, the viewing tower and car park all make Flanders Moss a truly accessible reserve for all to explore and enjoy.
