Knider Scout is a moorland flat terrain and a National Nature Reserve located in the Dark Peak of Derbyshire county, England. It includes 700 ha (1700 acres) of varied upland habitats, including bog and subalpine dwarf shrub. The area is a significant resource of research and demonstration into the procedures of restoration. The restoration of the sideland vegetation is one of the greatest and most successful examples of its kind in the country. It supports a couple of upland breeding birds, important species of birds of prey, red grouse, golden plover, twite and waders such as curlew and ring ouzel.
