This site includes both the nutrient-enriched Loch of Isbister and basin mire separated from the loch by low ridges of glacial till. Open water transitional plant communities and bog habitats support a very rich assemblage of wetland plants. A reedbed (Phragmites) is also present. The IBA is important for both breeding and wintering wildfowl.
