Meikleour Photo: a fantastic Meikleour Photograph Featuring Meikleour Beech Hedge - Paul giving it a sense of scale

Photograph Taken On Monday, June 1, 2020


Meikleour Beech Hedge, Perthshire. This is the highest hedge in the world (100 ft high) and the longest in Britain (1/3 of a mile long). Planted in Autumn 1745, it is thought the men who planted it were called to fight in the Jacobite Rebellion and none of them returned alive. In tribute the trees were allowed to grow and the hedge acts as a living landmark to them. It is usually trimmed every 10 years, re-measured and checked by the Guinness Book of Records.View image on Flickr
