Rubha nam Braithairean Reviewed

The visit to Brothers’ Point last Monday produced a list of 144 plants, which is not bad for this time of year in this part of the world.  It can easily be forgotten that while we have many excellent species that are not found widely in the British Isles, the actual number of different species here is very low compared with say, southern England.

There was lots of Juniper (Juniperus communis subsp. nana) on the cliffs, Marsh Hawksbeard (Crepis paludosa) along the burn and Danish Scurvygrass (Cochlearia danica) where it belongs – on the seashore rather than on a motorway.
