Restoring Inverclyde’s peatland ‘could help stop flooding in the area’

Restoring part of Inverclyde’s peatland could help stop flooding in the area in the decades to come, according to environmental experts.

The team at Yearn Stane – a project which aims to restore a functioning environment within the landscapes and communities of west central Scotland – say that rewilding Duchal Moor could ‘significantly’ reduce flooding, and the costs brought by it.
