Sure, Scotland had plenty of wood to build these boats, but "covered" with "thick" forest??? Really???
Given that Whiskey made its appearance about the same time this boat was used (800 BC), there's almost 30 centuries of Whiskey making (uses wood) and storing (uses wood).
Now I'm not saying the Scots like their Whiskey, but you see where this is going.
Yeah, hard to believe, isn't it? Especially when you watch the British Open when it's played at St. Andrews. It's hard to imagine a tree.
yeah, all those hills were once wooded. i always find the highlands a bit odd (as well as very beautiful) for that reason - all the hills are bald!
