I agree it is Avenue Plantation, looking south towards Mains of Drum from above Robbie Rossie's Wood. Field boundaries etc from http://maps.nls.uk/view/75475934 match.



The aftermath of the "devastating storm in Jan 1953 that wiped out most of the medium and older aged forests in North East Scotland" is shown in many photos at http://www.forestry-memories.org.uk/list.asp?field=year&crit=1953

Could the flattened trees be the result of the storm of January/February 1953? The storm surge was partly caused by strong northerly winds, which would certainly have been felt in this area, as the surface pressure chart on http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/news/in-depth/1953-east-coast-flood shows.

Flattened trees of Avenue Platation, Mains of Drum, Aberdeenshire. The road in the top-left is the A93.

Agreed. View is looking south. It may just be my display, but the default display of this image seems to be too big - I had no idea that there was a road in the shot, until I read the comment and shrank the image!
