Situated on the shores of Loch Lochy on the A82 road from Fort Augustus to Fort William are three Giant Redwoods standing in the grounds of the Corriegour Lodge Hotel. As can be seen from the photograph, one has lost its top, probably from a lightening strike, but it is still a tall tree. Thanks to Alex who advised about these trees by texting just before we got there. Then again, it would have been difficult to miss them on the small peninsula, silhouetted against the sky.
