Musselburgh - Carberry Tower (East Lothian)
|Thanks to Scott for sending some fabulous photographs of an avenue at Carberry Tower.
Scott wrote; "I spotted about 12 or 13 scattered around the grounds near the entrance driveway and on further exploration I found an avenue consisting of 39 trees hidden away around the back of the house, each tree probably two and a half meters across and thirtyfive meters tall, looking very much the same size and age as the ones at Inchture near Perth so probably planted in the mid-late 1800s I guess?
To find them you have to turn right at the small T junction in the grounds where the sign says to exit to the left. You could walk across the lawn from the front of the house too but there are signs up saying 'Private Garden', so I went round the back. The road goes round the back of the main house and becomes a rutted track for about 500 metres past a few small cottages and the Carberry Care Home until you find the trees.
You can see them quite clearly in this link" Yes Scott, this is a marvellous view of them from the air.
