NO0352 : Woodland beneath Capel Hill

taken 2 years ago, 4 km from Tulliemet, Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

Woodland beneath Capel Hill
Woodland beneath Capel Hill
Remnants of a huge forest which once covered the hills around Loch Ordie. The forest was planted in the 1810s by the Atholl Estate and was mostly of larch. I am unsure as to what happened to it, although I have heard of a big fire.
The foreground is a waterlogged grassy area beside the Buckny Burn, the sort of place you see elk grazing in Scandinavia. Sadly not here, although there are now beaver downstream.
