23 Once I passed round the head of Drumelzier Burn glen and was heading diagonally across the face of the hill and up onto the crest of Glenstivon Dod the hillside was simply a mass of what I thought were wild strawberries. The picture above is just a small section of that mass, and in the first picture below I have zoomed in for a closer look - though the shot is into the light and the quality is not that great. Three weeks later I was again in these Manor Hills and by that time these plants were in fruit and I could see that the fruit is not that of the strawberry. It is in fact a cloudberry, and I have added a picture below of the plant in fruit.
