While walking here Tania and I discovered the majestic Baunreagh Sitka Spruce plot. These magnificent trees were planted in 1926, just eight years after the First World War. They are now typically about 45 metres high and 2.3 metres in girth according to some literature I came across. Apparently this is the most impressive Sitka Spruce stand in Ireland today, and these fabulous giants are now preserved for study and only used as a high-quality seed source for propagation.
Standing amongst them almost feels like you are surrounded by friendly, quiet, whispering giants!

Over the coming weeks and months I hope to develop the site into a useful resource for hikers and walkers.
