A walk up behind Glen House, through the bracken and past the growing patches of Rhododendron leads up to amazing views across to Arran and the misty outline of Ailsa Craig (once the source of blue hone granite used to make Scottish curling stones and now home to hundreds of gannets and puffins).

Many meadow pipits (mipits) flying about on the wind and a plump wheatear with its white bum resting on a rock after a long journey from Africa.

Scrubby patches of eared http://asnu.com.au/levitra-20mg/ willow (Salix aurita) are dotted about, growing in a slightly dwarfed habit as a result of strong winds whipping across the moors. The wet mossy patches hold a host of sphagnum species including the firey red-green sphagnum capilifolium, alongside patches of hard fern (Blechnum spicant) common butterwort (Pinguicula vulgaris) an insect eating plant with lovely pale green leaves and purple flower, St Johns wort and many types of lichen covering the exposed rocks.
