Cottascarth and Rendall Moss is one of the best places for wildlife in the UK.
The reserve is currently closed for building works. We're creating a new car park and a viewing hide out of the old croft ruins - it will be a brilliant place for watching hen harriers and will include space for school visits. We're sorry there is no access at present but hope everyone will enjoy the new facilities which are likely to be opened in April.
