Many people think we do not have trees in Orkney and you would be hard pressed to find deep forest, however, we do have a few woods and Binscarth is one of them.
Binscarth Woods is located on the outskirts of Finstown. You walk through a field to get to it and at some times of the year there will be cows in the field so if you have a dog, keep it on a lead. The image above and the video was filmed in March when the snowdrops were out.
Although a small wood it is rather bonnie.
Bernie Bell has written of the woods at Binscarth: Living in a Box – then and now
