NH8903 : Establishing a natural treeline

taken 6 years ago, 4 km from Feshiebridge, Highland, Great Britain

Establishing a natural treeline
Establishing a natural treeline
The woodland is returning to the Markie Glen. Here around 600m the trees are hanging on, but this is approaching the upper limit of their growth. This can be at about 1000m in southern Norway, but Scotland does not have the shelter of deep snow in most years and the tree line is lower. Sgran Dubh in the background is making a fairly good impersonation of a hill in central southern Scandinavia.

The hill is a benign lump from this side, but falls sharply to the east into the glacial trench of Gleann Eanaich.
