Portmoak Moss is a fascinating and unusual raised peat bog in Perthshire.
Also known as Portmoak Community Woodland, Portmoak Moss is located near Kinross and Loch Leven and is managed by the Woodland Trust Scotland and the local community.
A rare habitat, lowland raised bogs are now one of Europe’s most threatened habitats. The walk through Portmoak Moss is approximately 1.25 miles (2 km) on a well laid path. For those wishing to go off the beaten path, there are some tracks that can be walked, with care, for a better chance of seeing the wildlife and the deeper peat layers.
There is a small car park near to the entrance to Portmoak Moss at Scotlandwell. Immediately after leaving the village heading south on the B920, take the first track on the right which leads to the wood.
