NG2854 : Old fence by Loch Vorvin

taken 6 years ago, 3 km from Lusta, Highland, Great Britain

Old fence by Loch Vorvin
Old fence by Loch Vorvin
The fence shown extends for miles across the moor, however, it is broken down, with the wire completely missing in many places. (See NG2954 : Fence with no wire). This image looks along the line of the burn, Allt Airigh Neill, just as it flows from Loch Vorvin. As is often the case on the moorland, the burn has eroded the peat sufficiently to be flowing completely out of sight beneath the growth of heather and grass.
