South Sutor and forts

Picture added on 28 August 2004 at 21:39
On my first visit to the South Sutor in at least a quarter of a century I was at once struck by the very significant changes to the vegetation that have taken place in my absence. In particular, there is a great increase in both whin bushes, bracken and trees. The heather which was the predominant plant on the slope below the car park is being displaced by bracken and that course grass like plant. The Shingly Braes, a steep scree slope to the west of the forts down which I used to slither to the beach in the foreground, forty years ago, has become matted over with vegetation and with so many whin bushes at the top that I could hardly see down it. Not a rabbit to be seen anywhere. It was reassuring to find that there are still pigs at the forts.
