Newmains - Greenhead Moss Map

Situated to the south-west of Newmains & north-west of the village of Waterloo, Greenhead Moss is a cracking wee area with a terrific mix of terrain & old mineworkings.

Information about the area.

For those of you who have never been to the “Serengeti” this is your chance !!

The mapped area covers over 270 acres of land incorporating a wide variety of terrain, an extensive path network and as the term “Moss” implies not a great deal of climbing. Runnability at this time of year is at its best.

Throughout the area there are several monuments and the Stratographic Stairway & Ramp is worth closer examination after your run.
