The burning of heather and vegetation, Muirburn, on Scottish hills is permitted from October until April. See how actions above can lead to nocturnal illumination on the Isle of Skye as shown on the BBC website.

Lovely. I can smell it from here 😀. This used to happen in The Pennines, but nowadays the brigade are out in no time, and burning seems to be regarded as vandalism? Nice to see the old and trusted ways still continuing in the islands.
