The beautiful wildflower meadow of Keltneyburn attracts a kaleidoscope of butterflies including common blue, and the day-flying chimney sweeper moth is often seen on the reserve. Many plants flourish in the meadow but the reserve is particularly notable for eight species of orchid, including fragrant orchid.
Keltneyburn is a Coronation Meadow.
