Yesterday was a great day I headed along the coast to Cummingston it was so warm and I enjoyed getting next to sea sitting on the rocks and enjoying the sunny weather. I looked up and the sky had a pink glow at first I thought it was a cloud but it was smoke . The Skye had a red hue it was stunning but I knew something was up.
The cloud had changed the sky. There was a big fire locally near a wind farm and though many miles away the sky had darkened. There was a wild fire at a wind farm at Knockando.
There will be lots more wild fires with wild life lost sadly and as the ground all over is tinder dry we must be very careful.
Just a reminder that it is still very hot and dry and the potential for wildfire is still extremely high! Please take care and don’t light any fires. For more info on your rights and responsibilities in the Scottish countryside visit outdooraccess-scotland.scot
Just seen a post that North Wales has problems with wild fires it looks awful.
