Priority Habitat - Mountain Heaths and Willow Scrub

This priority habitat includes all the vegetation on ground above the altitudinal limit of woodland – an altitude that varies from over 600 m in the south and east to under 300 m in the north and west. As such it takes in a vast assortment of plant communities from willow scrub on ungrazed ledges to the moss-dominated heaths and snowbeds of our highest slopes and summits.
