We’ve just arrived at a cottage on the edge of Loch Earn in the Trossachs where we’ll be spending the next couple of weeks. The area is stunning but the first thing that struck me is how every single tree and fence post is literally dripping with lichen. It made me realise how little, quantity and variety, there is back in the Midlands. Poor signal here so I’ve taken a load of photos to compare to a guide when we’re home.
