Murroch Glen | Woodlands | G82 3PY

How to identify a Woodland? A woodland is a habitat where trees are the dominant plant form. The individual tree canopies usually overlap and interconnect, often forming a continuous canopy which shades the ground to varying degrees. However, woodlands are not just trees, depending on how much light reaches the ground through the tree canopy, there will be a vast variety of other plants. These plants include mosses, ferns, and lichens as well as small flowering herbs, grasses and shrubs. The different types of plants will encourage different types of animals ranging from herbivores to carnivores. The rotting wood and decaying leaf litter offer an alternative food source for a large variety of invertebrates and the quantity of dead organic material provide the ideal habitat for fungi and bacteria to flourish. Murroch Glen is only one of the many woodlands that can be found in West Dunbartonshire.

A 50Ha area with extensive woodland, and a wide variety of notable habitats.

This is one of the best examples of a well-structures wooded valley within the region.

A good variety of habitat types, especially base-enriched habitats. Given the variety of habitats there is an expected high species-diversity.
