Coladoir Bog on Mull in the Inner Hebrides features a variety of patterned mire types, with small areas of poor fen lying between some of the peat domes. It is the most northerly site for bog-rosemary Andromeda polifolia. Some of the pools support brown beak-sedge Rhynchospora fusca, and the occurrence of Sphagnum imbricatum further indicates the undisturbed nature of much of the site.
