The restoration area covers 77 hectares of upland hill ground located to the north of St Mary’s Loch in the Scottish Borders. Until 10 years ago the area was heavily grazed by sheep, which is likely to have been a major cause of damage to the peatland. Sheep numbers on the area have now been significantly reduced. The project consists of restoring 1.5 ha of actively eroding bog, and re-wetting the remaining 75.5 ha. The project was the first ever to be certified under the new Peatland Code, in August 2018, and was the product of a funding and delivery partnership between Scottish Natural Heritage's Peatland Action programme, the Scottish Rural Development Programme, the Tweed Forum and Forest Carbon.
