About the reserve

The reserve lies on the western fringe of the Ballaugh Curragh and is part of the ASSI and Ramsar site. The flora comprises a diverse range of meadow and wetland plants including yellow rattle, purple loosestrife, eyebright, yellow iris and knapweed.

Management: The reserve is divided by a track into two blocks which have been made stock proof by fencing. The meadows are managed by a cut for hay in late summer, followed by winter grazing with sheep. The two areas of curragh are left to develop naturally into woodland.
