Full results and splits

It is mainly rough open common land with patches of bracken and thicket. Although the map shows areas which are marked as undergrowth (bracken), these in some cases have been cut by the farmer and are now run able. There are quite a few areas of sessional marsh, which currently are very boggy. The photo on our website home page shows a section of the area looking east with Castle Bank hill in the background.
