  Fencepost with Lichen, in Highland Perthshire
by scotlandscotour

See the Highlands in Spring when the new growth brings a lushness and prosperity that reminds you - these lands could and did support families, farms and whole communities, before a mass depopulation in the 18th & 19th centuries (Highland Clearances).

The lichen on this old fencepost reflects the cleanliness of the air, away from car fumes and factories. A plus side to non-development!

I took this shot to demonstrate the typical colours of spring, in the Highlands.

The scene is the Sma' Glen, in Highland Perthshire, just over an hour from Edinburgh, so no excuses - you really must see this!

Address: Sma' Glen, A822 north of Crieff, Perthshire
Directions: Crieff, by Perth, Perthshire

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
