Didn't Jeremy Clarkson park a Land Rover on top of that? Nice pictures.

I don't care if you've posted pictures like that a hundred times, they're fantastic.

The great Caledonian Forest once covered much of the Scottish Highlands. It was composed largely of Scots Pine which moved in following the last Ice Age. Deciduous trees tend not to be so prevalent in our latitudes. Here, in Edinburgh in Central Scotland, for instance, we are on the same latitude as Moscow - USSR that is, not Idaho or Vermont.

This project is working to reinstate the flora and fauna of the Caledonian Forest -
