It might be dead but it isn’t going to give up yet…. This wonderful tree defies nature and stands proud in the middle of Rannoch Moor, waiting for the regular pilgrimage by togs to shoot it with the wonderful backdrop of Buachaille Etive Mor..
I’d not been down to the tree before our holiday to Arisaig a few weeks ago..It was easy to get down to itt.. just stepped in all the frozen footprints left by previous fans. Just as well given that the snow was rather deep for somebody lacking height .
(ps; if anybody finds a spirit level there, it may well be mine :) )
