Moorland grazing near Fellend
Moorland grazing near Fellend
Here and there the rough, boggy moorland gives way to patches of lusher grazing, often surrounded by derelict drystone dykes. Sometimes (though not in this shot) ridges and furrows can still be seen in these areas, showing that at one time they were cultivated.
The Minnigaff Hills rise in the distance, with the lump of Curleywee prominent at the centre of the photo.
