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.

"Beautiful Reaxing Stay" I booked a 2 night stay in the premium love cabin for my husbands 50th birthday. What a brilliant place! So peaceful and the facilities in the cabin were lovely! Hot tub was very relaxing, and the wood burner was cosy at nights. The spa on site was lovely too - very clean and professional. Thank you for a lovely stay! Mark A from Loanhead

We booked a lodge a day before arrival as a "MINI Honeymoon" after our Wedding on Saturday. I had been looking at local hotels which were averaging around £200 for 2 nights, I then came across these lodges and thought why not! For an extra £100 we had the privacy of our own lodge, with self catering facilities which we used both nights to make dinner, along with a wood burning stove, tv, dvd player and of course the main feature... the HOT TUB! We would definitely say this stay was more than worth what we paid, it was lovely, kitted out with everything we needed. Yvonne came in not long after we arrived to show us everything and give us some information about the area etc which was most useful. If you are looking for a lovely break away , go ahead and book this up ..... its definitely worth it! laurennessilicious on Trip Advisor
