Vote for Gow’s Tree

by Vose ~ February 24th, 2014

Niel Gow’s oak on the bank of the River Tay near Dunkeld in Perthshire is Scotland’s first entry to the European Tree of the Year contest. According to local legend this ancient oak, also known as the fiddle tree, is the one under which Gow wrote many of his fiddle tunes, which are still played today at ceilidhs and concerts around the world.

Woodland Trust Scotland are looking for people to support the entry by voting before the end of February.

Scotland is competing against nine other countries in Europe and public voting is open until the end of February. The tree is currently in 6th place and needs your support. Votes can be registered here. Click on Scotland to locate the directions for voting for Gow’s tree.
