IN DETAIL

A visit to Whittinghame Estate; including the arboretum and yew, and a walk along the Whittingehame Water and woodlands. This was the home of Alice Blanche Balfour (1850-1936), Katty has been studying the moths here and comparing her findings with those of Alice.

Katty volunteers at the National Museum of Scotland, mostly organising the moth collection; reach her blog by following the link.

This is a private estate and the owners have kindly allowed us to visit. Please stay with the group.
