Seasons are fab!

Penninghame Pond which isnt far from Glentrool is a fantastic place to go for a short stroll or walk the dogs. Whilst I was there earlier today, in the rain, I noticed that the leaves on one of the silver birch trees had started to turn yellow. Then when I opened my eyes a bit more I noticed that all of the birch trees had started to take on a magical golden glow.

As the wind blew yellow heart shaped leaves along the path I zipped up my coat to keep out the chilly breeze. I then got quite excited realising that autumn is just around the corner, where woodlands are transformed into magical places of vibrant colours and lochs take on the appearence of mirrors reflecting the surrounding trees and stunning colours in all directions.

I love this time of the year and cant wait to get back out there.

If you like Autumn colours too keep an eye on our website where we will be listing all of the Forestry Commission Scotland woodlands that you can visit which have great Autumn colours.
