Welcome to Gilmore House, Bed and Breakfast, Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland

This blog is my random ramblings and photos of what is going on in the B&B, my life, but generally my little jaunts out which I hope will give you a taster of all the wonderful excursions to do in our area.

Fallen trees and Fungi







Today I went for my dog walk in the woods armed with my camera to capture a picture of the 'eyelash' fungi, which is the small orange colour fungi. The other day I was in the woods and got talking to two people who were foraging about and being nosey I asked what they were doing! and it was they that told me about the eyelash fungi so called because when magnified it looks like, yes you guessed it an eye lash. The yellow fungi is called Fuligo septica 'Flowers of Tan'.

In the horrendous gales we had the other week quite a few trees in the woods were blown over in a real domino effect and someone has been busy with their chainsaw clearing up, real shame to see such ancient trees casually uprooted.
