S: Lycophytes on Shotts Bing
May 30, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Meet at 11am. We should find Diphasiastrum alpinum and Lycopodium clavatum, as well as Botrychium (lunaria or nordicum?) and horsetails. There are other larger ferns in the area. The site is at about 236 m, and quite exposed. If it is at all windy it will be cold, so we’ll need to have plenty of warm clothes.
To get there leave the M8 at Junction 5 and head south on the B7057. After about 1 mile, turn right on to Calderhead Road and park at NS 8756 6180.
Bring a packed lunch, or stop at a café in Shotts.
