There was widespread tree damage across the Forbes Estate in Aberdeenshire after the storm that hit Scotland last week.
A number of Scots Pines have blown over but fortunately none of the burial glades have been affected as these lie at the edge of the wood.
The clear up operation has begun and will take some time. With over six hundred years of experience though, the Forbes family are taking it in their stride.
Stories and thoughts from Elaine and James.
