A short walk into the depths of the Monadh Mor Bog Forest

By Julian Paren

Monadh Mr makes a good destination for a walk on a sunny day, because you can enjoy the sunshine between the rather widely scattered trees. And some trees are barely alive! A walk into the untamed SSSI gives you a challenge. To penetrate as far as you can into the boggy areas but still be able to extricate yourself and your wellington boots when you go further than you really should. Indeed I am not the only Geographer who has had to retrace purely on the evidence of a GPS track showing how he had got there.

So this the third Geotrip into the area can be viewed with the others to suggest where you can go. To be ultrasafe stay only on the higher heather-covered ground, avoid areas of beautiful deep green moss and stay away from the edge areas of obvious lochans and pools. You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page Link .
