A little-known and very beautiful vantage point right on the edge of Glenrothes this afternoon :) This is the totem pole at Formonthills, a very young (planted) woodland on the edge of the Lomond Hills which is managed by The Woodland Trust.

The sculpture was carved from a 2-tonne douglas fir, has lots of different local animals represented on its trunk, and is crowned with a majestic buzzard. I was visiting the site because it’s good for foraging haws and brambles…..which I’ve used to make haw leather this afternoon. More on that later! ;-)
