|Deroran Bog is typical of western bogs within the drumlin belt of Northern Ireland, being rather irregular in shape. The bog displays the classic convex domed profile typical of lowland raised bogs but has a relatively subdued microtopography with occasional small pools, and a few large hummocks. The surface, which supports a good Sphagnum moss cover, is characterised by low moss carpets interspersed with lawn and occasional shallow pools, with a large soakway in the centre. Notable species include the rare bog-mosses Sphagnum fuscum and S. imbricatum.|
