Peatlands

Much of the valley of the Forth used to be peatland. Although we have now lost most of it, there are still vestiges of this rare and important habitat in the Inner Forth, at Wester Moss, near Fallin. The Moss supports a small but precious range of plants and animals that can only survive on a healthy bog, including sundews, cotton grass, large heath butterflies and argent and sable moths.
