Peat hags, Geal Charn
Peat hags, Geal Charn
The peat bogs on Geal Charn and Meall Mor are at the last stage of erosion. The bog once washed or blown away is replaced by grasses on thin soils. Skylarks (Alauda arvensis) were singing here, and are usually absent from the wetter peaty soils. A pleasant place as winter turns to summer seeming to bypass spring, but an obvious navigational challenge at other times.
