Rothiemurchus

Rothiemurchus forest is one of the few remaining pine woods in Scotland that once made part of the Great Wood of Caledon, the extensive pine wood forest that stretched across the entire highlands of Scotland. Scottish pine woods such as Rothiemurchus are thought to be reduced to as little as 1% of the original wood and despite being around 7000 years old it is humans that have caused much of the damage to the great wood to the extent that only a few scatterings remain.
