Den of Fowlis

(Fowlis Den)

A small wooded ravine and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), the Den of Fowlis (Fowlis Den) crosses the boundary between Angus and Dundee City Council Areas, to the southeast of Fowlis and a half-mile (0.7 km) west southwest of Liff. Fowlis Castle overlooks the Den from the north, while an area of 8.27 ha (20.4 acres) was designated an SSSI in 1984, owing to its botanical interest. This is important for its mixed deciduous valley woodland of ash, wych elm and oak in association with a characteristic ground flora comprising species such as wild garlic Allium ursinum, wild hyacinth Hyacinthoides non-scripta and dog's mercury Mercurialis perennis, together with mosses and ferns.
