Local Areas of Environmental Significance
Gordon Moss
Gordon Moss, now covered by thick birch and willow woodland, is the surviving remnant of a much larger moss. The shallow depression in which it lies was at one time occupied by a loch covering up to 600 hectares. Over thousands of years, the loch gradually filled up with vegetation which eventually formed successive layers of peat.  For more information, please click here to visit Gordon's Community pages.

Greenlaw Moor
The Greenlaw Moor is a SSSI site. This is an extensive heather moor and is the only remaining dwarf shrub heath left in the Borders. Hule moss is a focal point for important numbers of pink footed geese with 3 to 6 % of the british wintering population coming here. There are also suitable areas for crossbill siskin and a wintering area for Red Grouse and Peregrine Falcon.
