Monkey Puzzle tree, Culloden House Garden

Monkey Puzzle trees are said to take their name from the fact that they are so sharp that even a monkey would be puzzled about how to climb them. They are hardy conifers native to the Chilean and Argentinian Andes but also found now in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand. The one pictured here grew in the grounds of Culloden House to the east of Inverness.
