Plunton Field 002Here’s a couple of pictures of the field, taken on Sunday when the grandparents visited. Matt, Fiona, Howard, Iris and Arthur went to explore our burn in their wellies. Iris’s verdict was it was thistly. Arthur got too cold (bright sunshine became a sharp shower) and Matt had a wee wade.

The burn (Pulwhirrin Burn) is pretty fast-flowing through the field and is about 4ft wide for the most part, going up to 6ft near the bridge under the road. The water is incredibly clean – in fact it’s classed as drinking water by SEPA. The field is pretty overgrown with lots of bracken (good for chicken bedding when dried, apparently).Plunton Field 001
