Priority Habitat - Lowland Meadows

These are unimproved grasslands on well-drained neutral soils in the lowlands.  Most Scottish examples belong to the MG5 NVC community and are on well-drained ground, with grassy swards and an abundance of herbs.  Much less common are examples of MG8, where the same species are accompanied by wetland herbs on ground which is wetter as a result of being flushed or periodically inundated.
