Hiking through woods

This evening, I am posting information on today’s small group hike through Dalzell Estate and Baron’s Haugh in North Lanarkshire.(Haugh is a Scots word meaning a river-meadow.) The site is located near Motherwell, about sixteen miles S.E. of Glasgow, Scotland.

This site combines nature and history. Here is a stunning designed landscape including fascinating historical features, while the woodlands and wetlands are home to an amazing array of birds and other wildlife.

As will evident from the images, the weather was very benign, featuring bright sunshine.
The hiking group encountered Dalzell House ( 17th c), a mausoleum, bird life, River Clyde, wetlands and ancient trees.
