Glen Douglas Dunbartonshire 2
nd July 2022recording
The moorland between Glen Douglas and Arrochar has received insufficient attention from botanists in recent years. This meeting aims to rectify the situation and will search for a number of interesting old records including Asplenium viride (Green Spleenwort), Juncus triglumis (Three-flowered Rush), Polystichum lonchitis (Holly-fern), Saxifraga stellaris (Starry Saxifrage) and Tofieldia pusilla (Scottish Asphodel). Hoping that participants will include at least one experienced recorder willing and able to lead a sub-party, there will be options to follow either a low-level route, keeping to an excellent track, or a higher-level route, involving rough walking on open hillside (with a maximum of around 300m of ascent). Come prepared for a day in the hills.
