Mountain ash beside the Fee Burn
Mountain ash beside the Fee Burn
The mountain ash is called rowan in Scotland, the name coming from the Gaelic rudha-an, the red one, referring to its berries. Another alternative name is fowlers' service tree, which refers to the use of its berries as bait for trapping birds. In the Scottish Highlands crofters planted these trees by their farm buildings as a safeguard against witchcraft, but the reason for this superstition is unknown. In mythology, the tree is associated with the god Thor.
