Teindland Forest Fallen trees lie across a firebreak in a section planted with larches.
Teindland Forest A gap in the dense planting allows the sky to be reflected in a small pool by the forest track.
Teindland Forest Most of this square is occupied by forestry. Here there are Larch and Scots Pine, and the whitich patches on the ground are reindeer moss.
Teindland Forest A clear-felled area in the middle of the forest. In the distance there is a glimpse of Fochabers, and the highest point on the skyline is the Bin of Cullen.
Rothes Cycle Trail The trail is signposted from here, but I am unsure how it got there to begin with.
Dark Pool One of several pools by the sides of the roads in Teindland Forest.
Larch Twigs Moss and lichen cover an older branch, but the hanging twigs are unaffected.
Larch These larches are in bud; within a week or so, if the good weather holds, they will be green with new needles.
Forest Road This is the new forest road, not on the map, presumably built for access for thinning out the plantations.
Moss of Findlayseat This open gate leading to a forest track through the larch plantation on Hunt Hill was a very welcome sight after plodding through almost a mile of rank heather and bog.
Teindland Forest This track and fence mark the boundary between two different forest blocks. The 1982 1:50,000 map shows forest on the right, but not on the left. This is looking up towards 'Findlay's…
Findlay's Seat Findlay's Seat is marked on the maps at the top of the track between the plantations. I have no idea who Findlay was, or why he or she had a seat up here, because there is no evidence t…
Pond on Feith Burn This pond isn't on the map. It is just beside a large new forest road which is also not on the map, and has formed in the boggy ground where the road dams the course of the burn.
Forest Operation This muddy mess was made by the huge tyres of the heavy forest machinery extracting the thinnings.

Triangulation Pillar This trig point is now useless, being surrounded by mature trees. It is 176 metres above sea level,and bears number S7083.
Teindland Forest This stretch of forest road is uncharacteristically wet - usually they are better drained.
Teindland Forest The clear felled area provides a view south towards Ben Aigan on the skyline.
Teindland Forest The fallen trees at the left have made the road shown on the map totally impassable, but fortunately it was not too rough going round by the unplanted area across the burn.
