13 Yellow Gorse Framing Loch Ness in Scottish Highlands, Scotland

The dominate colors of the Scottish Highlands in spring is green with dashes of yellow. No, not from the sun but from gorse. This prickly shrub seen here framing Loch Ness grows wild in patches along roads and hillsides. A Fabaceae cousin to the common gorse is broom. The latter has similar, bright yellow flowers yet a smooth stem. To a tourist’s eye, both plants add a delightful accent to the countryside. To residents, they are an invasive weed.
