NG3550 : Abandoned polytunnel

taken 6 years ago, near to Blackhill, Highland, Great Britain

Abandoned polytunnel
Abandoned polytunnel
Although looking to be in fully serviceable condition, the growth of bracken and other vegetation around this well sheltered polytunnel indicate that it is no longer in use. Nearby is a large but similarly abandoned sheep fank. It seems that the crofting lifestyle is no longer the way in Upper Edinbane. Beyond, the moorland amid the forestry plantation is tinted purple by the blooming heather.
