Road Directions

The reserve is one of Scotland's oldest landscapes, with 5,000 years of history locked in its layers of peat. From any viewpoint visitors will see how the surface of the bog has formed a huge, shallow dome.Moine Mhòr is also one of the few landscapes in Britain which takes in saltmarsh, peat bog, woodland and hillside

Visitors may be lucky enough to spot the fast-moving hen harriers search the moss for prey whilst the summer light catches on the glint of a dragonfly. In autumn the Reserve is dominated by the deep red tones of Sphagnum moss, soaking up water like a sponge.

There is a car park, picnic area and a trail suitable for less able visitors.
