During a trip to Culloden I almost trod on a lizard whilst walking around the battlefield. Yes, a Scottish lizard, about 3 inches long.
In my Scottish Wildlife challenge (that failed and fell by the wayside) I had obtained a list of all Scotland's indigenous species from
but after finding the lizard I couldn't remember any reptiles being on the list.
However, here is a site with information on Scotland's 3 reptile species -
Scottish National Heritage
Here are a couple of photos of the little creature.
The red stone is a bit unfortunate as it looks like a giant tongue. The lizard would not move, though, and I didn't want to frighten him any more. A couple of quick shots taken then I moved on to give him time to recover and hide before anyone else came along.
