Quite a spectacular hillfire took place on Arran yesterday. I have put a couple of pics below, but the bigger ones are in my Isle of Arran Wildlife site and the link to the hill fire photos is here

These fires might look like they are damaging the land, but they are are doing quite the opposite. In a few weeks new, fresh, healthy vegitation will sprout up and any wildlife will gradually return.
