An area of semi-natural woodland dominated by Birch, with a fringe of conifers along the northwestern boundary. In addition there is a block of predominantly Scots Pine plantation, which is developing a Birch understory. No public access but lots to see from the road that cuts the reserve. Grid ref. (SD693448)
