Beech Avenue at MacFarquhar's Bed
This show the perilous state of the avenue of beech trees leading down to MacFarquhars bed. Believed to have been planted by George Ross back in the 18th century as part of his intensive tree planting schemes, these trees are now senile, collapsing and rotting. They should have been replanted with seedlings 40 years ago to ensure the future of the avenue. See picture #88 from around 1900 showing the trees near their prime.
