Road Directions

The sodden surface of the bog is a palette of green, purple and red shades of Sphagnum mosses and wet-loving plants. This leads to a sense of a remote wilderness among the busy surrounding fields. Colourful butterflies flit over the moss, whilst adders and lizards bask in the sunlight. Summer is one of the best times to visit Kirkconnell Flow.
