The Thackery Grove, a small part in a big endeavour. In the hopes that a great forest will one day thrive on these mountains.
For James, Kate and Tamsin - may Britain always be beautiful for you. With love, mum xxxooo

The West Highland Way, with its stunning sections of ancient Caledonian woodland has been a very happy part of my Cape Cornwall to Cape Wrath walk. I have spent many happy hours in the woods of Inchcailloch and Tyndrum look-at-ing; enjoying loch and mountain, trees, birds, red squirrels, ferns and mosses. These times have inspired me to start a small grove in the Scottish Highlands as part of Tree for Life's great Caledonian Forest restoration project. I hope my friends and family will enjoy planting trees here too, helping to make a forest which will flourish for the centuries to come. One day it will be a great Caledonian forest - home to rowan, Scott's pine, aspen, birch and juniper trees, mountain hare, capercaillie, pine marten, roe deer, red squirrels, and perhaps in time wild boar, beaver and lynx. It is my hope.
