Knowetop Lochs (Galloway)

Knowetop Lochs is a small, diverse upland reserve. Two small lochs are separated by a ridge of birch woodland fringed by reed-swamp, bog and willow scrub, with areas of wet and dry heath. Much of the reserve is marshy with willow thickets and conifer shelter belts are slowly being converted to broadleaved woodland.

Scottish Wildlife Trust

On the A712, 5 miles west of the village of Corsock in Dumfries and Galloway. Parking is in a layby beside the reserve entrance gate and sign. The Emperor Dragonfly has been sighted here and may breed here.
