Day 90: The Tootflit's House

We went for a walk in the woods with the dog and I got some nice shots of random foresty sunny niceness but this is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time! First we came across a nice carved stump with an oval hole in it, then another tree stump with steps carved into it leading up to a tiny bench with a sign above it pointing to 2 different houses and then a little further along the path there was a green painted stone - this one seemed a little odd and obvious, but then through the trees my dad spotted this house halfway up a tree! There was also a frog sitting on a tree stump before we got back to the car. It turns out that this is a project by a local sculptor, Robin Wood (best name for a wood sculptor ever!), and the Woodland Trust Scotland to encourage kids out into the forests and to look around them and make it fun. However, I say screw the kids - this is my kinda thing - awesome hidden sculptures to find? I'm in! I definitely want to come back here sometime soon to do the walk with all the sculptures on it :-)
For anyone local: Pressmennan Wood
