Following my post http://parkswatchscotland.co.uk/2016/06/17/ring-ouzels-new-vision-cairngorm-ski-area/ Ron Greer sent parkswatch some photos of montane scrub from North America and Norway and some useful links which help illustrate the type of landscape that might result from planting the ski area.
Here are some useful links from Ron:
- http://www.nhdfl.org/about-forests-and-lands/bureaus/natural-heritage-bureau/photo-index/labrador-tea-heath-krummholz.aspx (more photos from eco-equivalent zones in North America)
- http://mylittlenorway.com/2011/07/guide-to-cloudberries/ Ron sent this in response to my photo of Cloudberry in Coire Cas. The 2012 price for Cloudberries in Norway was 350NOK per kilo ( £30 per kilo) – perhaps Natural Retreats could serve them at the Day Lodge?
