Òran Uisge (Gaelic for song of water) is a wildlife reserve which is situated on the banks of the river Roskhill. The meadow is part of the original croft, now owned by Sue and Warren. The croft, Number 1 Roskhill has not been grazed by livestock for over 20 years.

The meadow has over 50 varieties of wildflower, which first appear in May right through to late September. These range from a sea of bluebells in May, three types of orchid in June and July and meadowsweet and valarian in late summer. The scents from the flowers can be intoxicating and can lift your spirits.

     I enjoy writing this blog because, I am passionate about nature. I would like to inspire others to love nature too. The love of nature is a wonderful gift that, gives you free pleasure for your entire life. It is vital that we all look after the natural world in our own environments.
