Description

This beautiful Perthshire glen was made famous by Robert Burns in the poem he wrote at the spot in 1787. Before that time it was called the Dens of Moness after the burn that flows, foams and cascades through it. Birks is the Scots word for birch trees although the lower level is mainly beech wood. Autumn colours following some heavy overnight rain made it a spectacular 2 mile walk. The Edinburgh University Renaissance Singers have kindly allowed me to use as backing their rendition of the Burns song recorded by me on another occasion.
