Estimated between 130 and 170 tons. Don’t know how they figure that. It is ginormous. ryaner Posted by ryaner

Have your feet recovered yet?

I did wonder which way you went. My way was OK really, I just like a good moan sometimes :-) thelonious Posted by thelonious

Incidentally I started from the old quarry on the B881 south of Loch Fad, followed the track through Quien Plantation to Barmore farm and up the hill from there. Still lots of gorse, though. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

I'm trying to think of a larger cap stone off the top of my head... and can't. Ideas? GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Rum and raisin is the best, no doubt :-) thelonious Posted by thelonious

How cool you thought that was a good spot and so did someone else thousands of years ago.

(Plus rum and raisin, you're right that's the best!)

Star Carr / Link by Rhiannon

Hi Rhiannon, just about to moan that I could not get the download, when all of a sudden a pdf of the whole book popped up on the screen, so thank you for the link.
Mike Pitts wrote an interesting article about Star Carr/Blick Mead.....

Shame there is not much to show of the site, especially as we live in the Vale of Pickering (and experience flooding).

Well this is a surprise. I had no idea about this one and it looks pretty damn great from your pics Drew.

I'm starting to get a little worried for your safety though. Please don't go looking for cairns any farther south round here and no crossing very big wire fences. The Highland Wildlife Park is too close and we don't want to lose a TMAer from a tussle with them polar bears! :-)

I like this one. A Gladman in his natural habitat!

You are making me think again about this cairn.

Good to see more photos of all these cairns. I've lost mine from my trip (must have forgotten to save them to my backup drive, very annoying).

It was a fine site and deserving of more time that we gave it as, just out of shot here, there was a massive bull and his harem. He eyeballed us but left us alone, though my mate Paulie almost needed to change his underwear on first sighting him. I fired off a few shots and bailed out sharpish. ryaner Posted by ryaner
