Annex I habitats that are a primary reason for selection of this site

7130 Blanket bogs (* if active bog)  * Priority feature
This relatively low-altitude site lies on a large peninsula in Wester Ross. Watershed and valley side mires dominate the area and include several areas of pronounced surface patterning. The oceanic nature of the site is reflected in the vegetation which includes both white and brown beak sedges Rhynchospora alba and R. fusca, respectively. Extensive Sphagnum cover, including hummocks of Sphagnum imbricatum and S. fuscum, indicates a general absence of disturbance.
