Located between Mochrum Loch, Black Loch and Castle Loch, this lowland site in south-west Scotland is one of the best examples of blanket bog in the Dumfries and Galloway. The site has a small but actively growing area of blanket bog. The lochs which surround it are also the best examples of lowland oligotrophic waters in the area.
Unlike other similar peatland sites which would be typical of this area, the surface features on Mochrum Lochs are largely flat rather than the hummocks and hollows which would be considered more commonplace in this type of habitat. Vegetation is dominated in places by Sphagnum mosses, with a range of plants typical of healthy bog growth also occurring on site.
