Monk Myre

A ‘kettle’ hole created in the last ice age.

Monk Myre is of glacial origin, formed of a type of geographic formation known as a ‘kettle’ that has partially silted up.

The loch is of national importance as it provides a complete dating record for vegetation changes over the last 13,000 years.

It is also important for its open water transition fens, assemblage of rare vascular plant species, wintering greylag goose population and geomorphology.
