A walk in amongst the Beech Trees at Courthill

A little bit further along the road from Kinclaven Church there is a wood on the left hand side called Courthill, you can park fairly easily next to it.  This particular wood is very popular in the spring as it covered in Bluebells, but today I came to look at the magnificent trees.  It is a very gentle walk with a narrow path gently snaking through the lush green bracken.  This wood is home to some fairly impressive ancient beech trees and you can only marvel at the shapes they have made over the hundreds of years they have been growing.  On my map it shows there is a memorial cairn somewhere in the fields at the top end of the woods, something for another day.
