Summer at Bamff

Posted by on Jun 25, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

Flowers We had an American visitor here at the week-end who was astonished by the size of our flowers. She was a keen gardener and had some of the same flowers in her own garden as we have in ours, but she said ours were much bigger.  Flowers – gardens and wild flowers –  are a feature of Scotland that are possibly not as famous abroad as rugged mountains and bloody battles, but they are  one of the things I love about living here. This year has been a great year for growth as we’ve had plenty of rain and sunshine and the wild flowers have been a delight as well as the flowers in the garden. The flowers in my pots at the back have done wonderfully well and I haven’t even had to water them once.

Beaver project

Some European beavers were brought to Bamff in 2002 to begin a pioneering project - the first of its kind in the UK.

Although the Bamff beavers are contained by fences, their areas are so large that they live as if in the wild. In 2006 the first kits were seen and there are now two families established in the low ground of the estate where they have created an impressive wetland habitat, with dozens of dams and pools full of fish and other wildlife.
