A lovely rough patch of scattered birch and beech trees, reached along the rhododendron lined driveway which curls round the summit to the hidden Melgum Lodge. This 'Arts & Crafts style' alpine chalet was one of the many desirable, hunting, fishing and shooting lodges - built on Royal Deeside from around the 1830s. This one was for the doctor to Queen Victoria, when at Balmoral. There is also a bronze age cemetery in this same wood - just one of the many, many ancient remains that pepper this whole area. The neat nearby village of Tarland has a superstar daughter in Major Philippa Tattersall -who was the first female to pass The Royal Marines Commando training course- at her 3rd and final allowed try -somehow getting over the 6ft wall despite her 5ft 4' height. Not to mention regaining the single rope from a dead hang. She later went on to swim the Channel.Chris Pearson10/02/2020
