Field Visit (6 March 2016)

Graffiti was noted carved into several beech trees on the edge of the designed landscape of Balcaskie House. The carvings, or arborglyphs, range from initials to names and in at least two cases dates are associated with names. For example, T. HAR___ 1981, is carved into one of the trees, immediately adjacent and north of the B942 minor road.
