C - Caledonian forest to Copland, Patrick
Pertaining to ancient Caledonia, the highlands of Scotland, or to Scotland generally.
~ Forest n
The primeval forest of Scotland.
The North East landscape was not always as treeless as it appears now. The predation of sheep and man in the lowlands and the activities of man, sheep and deer in the highlands have reduced the great natural Caledonian forests to a few restricted areas, the last refuge for a variety of plants and animals.
