Guided Walk: Bogs for Beginners

A guided walk to see the beauty of a bog up close!

Learn how to spot some of the weird and wonderful plants, bugs and other creatures that live in our blanket bogs with the Forestry and Land Scotland peatland team.

We will also learn about the important role our peatlands play in a changing climate, and why it’s important to protect and restore these unique habitats.
