Of all the autumn spectacles, the changing colours of the rowan tree is a big favourite. The more common Scots Gaelic name is caorunn (pronounced choroon, the ‘ch’ as in loch).
In the Highlands, the rowan is steeped in folklore. It was seen as a tree of protection against witchcraft and enchantment.
Look out for the tiny five-pointed star at the tip of the berries. This charming characteristic may have contributed to its protective reputation.
