Bluebells & Beech
The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed that the woods here have been identified by two different spellings. Castramont is the correct spelling…..at least that’s what is on the map, but the other spelling, that of Carstramon, is the name of the house at the northern edge of the wood. I have been challenged when selling prints of this area that I have made an error when using Castramont. In the end it is common usage that determines what places are called, despite what the map says.
Galloway has many forests though many of them are conifer plantations, so it’s a real joy to walk amongst these mature trees especially in Springtime when the flowers carpet the ground, and birdsong fills the air.
