The Birnam Oak
The Birnam Oak
This historic tree has associations with Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' as Malcolm's army camouflaged itself with branches from Birnam Wood, of which this is a survivor. It is very doubtful if this particular tree was alive at the time of the reputed battle in 1057, although it is certainly several centuries old and is exceedingly large for a sessile oak.
