S: Creag nan Eun, Glen Shee

August 17

BPS Scottish group meeting Saturday 17th August 2019

‘Creag nan Eun’ (OS map 43: NO 134 754)

Meet at 11am at the car park on the A93 at the southern end of the ‘Old Military Road’ (approximately 3 km south of the Glenshee ski centre).

Leader: Clive Dixon: (clive_dixon@hotmail.com)

This site does not look like much from the road, but it is rich in the number of fern species in a small area due to the close proximity of a limestone outcrop; we should see Asplenium viride, Polystichum lonchitis, Cystopteris fragilis, Gymnocarpium dryopteris, etc. Also, this is a known site for Polystichum x illyricum (the hybrid of P. lonchitis and P. aculeatum) which we will try to re-find.

Bring a packed lunch: weather permitting, we can picnic across the road by ‘Allt a Ghlinne Bhig’ (the river), and hunt for Equisetum variegatum and Equisetum pratense. (Alternatively, there is a cafe at the Glenshee ski centre.)

The site is steep with boulders (so stout footwear required), but we can take our time; this is not a strenuous outing.

Please let us know beforehand, if you are coming. If you need transportation let us know!

Hope to see you there.
