Visit the Oldest tree in Britain

The Fortingall Yew tree is said to be the oldest tree in Great Britain and is estimated to be between 1500 and 3000 years old.  Modern experts estimate it to be around 2000 years old and it is thought that it may be parts of the remains of a post-Roman Christian site.  Others have suggested it may be a 5000 year old tree!  Whatever its age it still remains that it is one of the oldest trees in Europe and possibly the oldest in the UK.

The problem about trying to age the tree is that  through natural decay it has lost the heartwood rings that would establish the true age of the ancient yew tree.

The yew tree has been cut, and even burnt in the past and it has the look of several smaller trees, however the main trunk is underground and all come from the same tree roots.

We recently stayed at Kinnaird woodland lodges (love cabin). When we arrived the cabin was beautifully decorated with candles and rose petals etc! The view was absolutely amazing, it was so relaxing to sit in the hot tub and watch the sun go down. The perfect place to be if you are looking for a chilled out place to stay. Sadly our weekend away was cut short due to unfortunate circumstances but very kindly Jane and Andy have offered us another stay up at the lodges to make up for it. I can't stress how thankful we are to them and would definitely recommended anyone to visit Kinnaird woodland lodges as the overall stay and service is amazing.
