Airstreams in Flanders Moss National Nature Reserve with showers guide


Flanders Moss’ status as the largest lowland raised bog in the UK may not, at first, sound particularly exciting, but a visit will reveal how special this nature reserve is. An ancient and wild landscape, Flanders Moss is covered with sphagnum mosses and a wide variety of specialist plants and animals that create a colorful carpet of reds, oranges and greens. You can enjoy the captivating view by taking a stroll along the boardwalk, and from the viewing tower that provides views all across the reserve. While there is no camping within the reserve, the campsites at Trossachs Holiday Park and Cobleland are both within a 15-minute drive.

When to go

Flanders Moss National Nature Reserve has something different to appeal all year round. In spring and summer, the reserve is covered in fluffy white bog cotton and filled with nesting birds. You’re also likely to see reptiles such as frogs, toads and lizards. In fall the color palette changes to rich orange and you can see rutting red deer. Winter is worth a visit for the spectacle of wintering geese roosting on the lake.

Know before you go

  • The bog can be deeper than it looks: Be sure to stick to the boardwalk and paths.
  • Visitors should observe the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, leave no trace and refrain from picking flowers.
  • The closest public bus stop is in Thornhill 2.5 miles (four kilometres) away. The closest train station is Stirling, nine miles (15 kilometres) away.
