NJ4142 : Shuen Strip

taken 10 years ago, 3 km from Torry, Aberdeenshire, Great Britain

Shuen Strip
Shuen Strip
A stripe is a burn or small watercourse, but I am unsure of the origin of the peculiar-looking name Shuen; it could perhaps be from Gaelic 'seann' meaning 'old'. It looks as if it has been artificially deepened to improve the drainage. The farms on the skyline are Upper Hillside on the left and Carbrotach on the right.
