Dundreich Plateau

The Dundreich Plateau extends south and east from the summit of Dundreich, one of the Moorfoot Hills, crossing the boundary from the Scottish Borders into Midlothian. It represents an upland blanket bog which was designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) in 1986 and comprises 285.6 ha (705 acres). Cloudberry (Rubus chamaemorus) is abundant, and mosses and lichens are particularly rich. Small valleys (cleuchs) add diversity to the site and contain a large number of flowering plants, mosses and liverworts, some of which are rare in SE Scotland.
