Peatlands cover more than 20% of Scotland’s land area. They include a range of soil types and habitats, including blanket bogs, raised bogs and fens. Scotland has about 60% of the UK‟s peatlands, and 4% of Europe’s total peat carbon store.

Find out more about what bogs and peatlands are, why they are important, and what we can do to restore and protect them in the SPICe "Bog Blog" .
