Flanders Moss – Stirlingshire’s boggy treasure!

Wednesday 2 August, 2–4pm

Flanders Moss, Thornhill, Stirlingshire

Have a meander around the boardwalks of Flanders Moss with Scottish Natural Heritage’s David Pickett and explore its boggy treasures: beautiful clear pools surrounded by sphagnum mosses in jewel colours, white pompoms of cotton-grass, and yellow bog asphodel. If you keep your eyes open you may spot dragonflies or even a lizard! Get a flavour too, of the fascinating history of the Moss and the ‘Moss Lairds’ who were tenants in the times after the Jacobite rebellion. A walk to suit all ages/abilities: the board walk is near the carpark and is buggy- and wheelchair-friendly. For those that wish there is also a 7 metre viewing tower by the boardwalk.

Booking is essential for this walk.  Please call 01786 478509 or email

This is a free event however donations are very welcome to support our work.
