The Forests of Inverness - 6

The most impressive feature of the woodland in Reelig Glen is the stand of Douglas Fir trees, well over 100 years old with an average height of 160 - 170 feet, around 50 metres.

One specimum measured in 2000 was over 200 feet in height. When the tree was remeasured and confirmed at 62 metres, it was the tallest tree In Britain at the time. After a local competition, it was named Dughall Mor.
