What is a Moorland? A moorland or moor is a type of habitat found in upland areas in temperate grasslands, savannas, shrublands, shrublands biomes, montane grasslands and is characterised by low-growing vegetation on acidic soils. The difference between a Moorland and a Heathland is that a Heathland has been shaped by human land management. They need to be carefully managed, as they have come to support specialist wildlife and grow on infertile soil. Scotland's mountains, moors, hills and heaths cover more than 50% of our land area and extend from near sea level in the north and west to our highest mountain tops and there are six in West Dunbartonshire including Blairvault Burn and Pappert Muir.

A 13Ha Grassland located in the Bonhill area.

Some very good quality blanket bog Patches of calcareous grassland is found towards the east end of the site.

The habitats are mainly semi-natural, although subject to heavy impacts from grazing and trampling, especially towards the west.

Some long-standing areas of agricultural land have recently been augmented by some newly sown areas of improved grassland.
