Does anybody know this forest ?

years ago, I have been visiting Scotland and we did a hike to a mountain, that led

through a forest. There, along the path, were stumps (of trees), where we could read

about historical events, related to the annual rings of the trees. 

I would like to recommend it to somebody, but do not remember the name of the area. 

Can anybody tell me where it is ?

    Hello horselover. Intriguing!  Can you give us a clue?  Where were you when you started the hike?  Can you remember the name of any nearby town?  Were you travelling all over Scotland or in a particular area (north/south...)?

    Hi Horselover,

    Were you perhaps in the forest near Aviemore ?

    The Forestry Commission had at one time a large cross section from a tree and it had listed on the annular rings the dates of events that happened then.

    It was next to Loch-an-Eilein visitors centre. Part of the Rothiemurchus Forest.

    @horselover I tried searching Google for you yesterday to see if I could find out anything about this walk ... alas, nothing. Would really need to know what area it is or what mountain you climbed. Or do you have photos? :)
