Part 18: The Money Tree
Dated 14th August 2020
Approaching a tourist info sign stating Bruce’s Stone and being close to Robert the Bruce’s ancient trail north we pulled into a parking area and stopped. The stone was to be found 700 Yards through cleared forestry land, along winding paths. Before we had gone 50 Yards we saw this strangely decorated tree stump, it having been cut but not pulled from the earth.
No explanations for its adornment but obviously meaningful to many passers-by.
Childhood memories of a mother’s advice immediately sprang to mind…..money doesn’t grow on trees.
