I've blogged several times about Easter Craiglockart Hill (for example read the first few posts here) but today was, unbelievably, the first time Crafty Green Boyfriend and I have walked up Wester Craiglockart Hill.
There's a pretty wooded path round the hill which comes out onto the grassland that makes up the majority of the hill.
Part of the grassland has been for years a golf course, the other part is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for acid and calcareous grassland, though ecologically speaking, the SSSI is in very bad condition.
There are some lovely views up the hill, and today's low clouds made them particularly atmospheric (though at the same time that means that some of the photos are quite dark). I love the late summer pale gold grasses and the way they contrast with the dark skies and late summer dark green of the trees.
