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 Bonhill Muir & Pappert Hill.

A 200Ha Area Located at the peak of Nobleston Wood.

Habitat condition indicates typical common moorland species, plants, bryophtes, birds and invertebrates.

The area is enclosed on all sides by important areas of moorland, currently classified or proposed as either SINC or Wildlife Corridor.

The site is largely an area of failed conifer plantation, but now a valuable suite of moorland habitats. The most valuable habitat type is wet heath.
