This site lies in the Grampian foothills and comprises a series of raised mires in the adjacent Forest of Alyth Mires and Dun Moss. The sites are remarkable not only for the retention of their poor-fen lagg zones but for the diversity and abundance of Sphagnum species, including the relatively scarce Sphagnum fuscum and S. imbricatum.
