Portmoak Moss

Between Scotlandwell and the eastern shoreline of Loch Leven lies the 107-acre Portmoak Moss, one of the few surviving raised bogs in central Scotland.Β  Here, since the last Ice Age, an area of deep, wet peat has developed in a poorly drained hollow.Β  Once used by local people as a source of peat for the fire, β€˜The Moss’ has been managed as a community woodland in partnership with the Woodland Trust since 1996.Β  Trails provide an opportunity to see a rich variety of wildlife including red squirrels, roe deer, greater spotted woodpeckers, long-tailed tits, damsel flies, dragon flies and butterflies.
