Turn left at junction GR767654 onto the forever road. For a few weeks each summer the whole tundra to the left will be plastered with yellow buttercups. It was here I once saw grown men lurching around with butterfly nets, stuffing unlucky captives into the killing bottle. I was horrified to learn selling our butterflies to Japan is a lucrative business. (This is one occasion when I would have welcomed a few stewards around for a ticking off.) So that's how I learned Plateau is also a butterfly hotspot—watch that caterpillar crossing the road!
