Moine Mhor National Nature Reserve

Moine Mhor National Nature Reserve is a surviving remnant of raised bog and is home to dragonflies, hen harriers, curlews and other moorland and wetland species. In autumn the reserve is dominated by the deep red tones of sphagnum moss, soaking up water like a sponge. Older than many of the standing stones in the surrounding glen, Moine Mhor has locked many years of history into its layers of peat. It's best viewed from the road close to Crinan Canal. There's a picnic area, short woodland trail and wooden walkway.
