Congratulations to Campbell MacDonald from Torphichen who scooped first prize in the RSFS Photo competition. His photo of Loch Tay, taken in the evening light in March of this year and celebrating the Year of Natural Scotland, was a clear winner. Tesco sponsored the competition and the prize will soon be on its way to Campbell.
Thank you to all those who sent in photos.

 

Simon Blackett recently attended an event to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the forestry damage created by the Great Gale of 31 January 1953, particularly in the North East of Scotland.   There were many first hand accounts of the Gale and the main presentation is reproduced here.
