Brerachan Meadows

The flat-lying Brerachan Meadows are situated alongside the Brerachan Water in Highland Perth and Kinross, located 2 miles (3 km) west of Straloch. Designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) by Scottish Natural Heritage, the reserve extends to only 0.4 ha (1 acre) and is managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust. It represents an area of upland hay meadow, an unusual habitat in Scotland, which supports a rich diversity of plant species including a variety of orchids, Meum athamanticum (spignel), Trollius europaeus (globeflower), Alchemilla (lady's mantle) and Anthriscus sylvestris (wild chervil). The grass is cut annually to promote natural regeneration.
