|Cranny Bogs is made up of three inter-drumlin, lowland raised bogs. They are typical of western bogs within the drumlin belt of Northern Ireland, being elongated and very irregular in shape. Generally, dome structure is poorly defined. The bogs vary considerably in their microtopography, with some displaying relatively well-developed hummock and lawn complexes. Shallow pools are scattered over the three bogs. |
Notable species include the bog-mosses Sphagnum imbricatum, S. fuscum and S. pulchrum, with cranberry Vaccinium oxycoccos and the moss Pleurozia purpurea.
