The walkway at Langlands Moss was built during the (very cold) winter of 2012 and replaced an timber walkway that had fallen into disrepair

Location: Langlands Moss Nature Reserve

Langlands Moss near East Kilbride in South Lanarkshire is a rare lowland raised bog habitat nestled in the heart of Scottish suburbia on the outskirts of Glasgow. A new 374m-long raised boardwalk has been installed made from Duraplas® recycled plastic planks and posts supplied by Centriforce Products.

The Moss is a designated Local Nature Reserve, attracting between 10 and 12,000 visitors every year from schools and local community groups to University researchers interested in its rare flora and fauna. Since 2006 it has been watched over by The Friends of Langlands Moss who have worked hard to nurture and protect its special environment.

The moss is too sensitive and dangerous for people to walk on so a raised 1.3m wide platform is essential to allow access for both leisure and conservation of the rare ecosystem of mosses, lichens, reptiles, invertebrates and birds.
