I had a quick search for these cairns last time I was there but had no luck. Good to finally see what they look like. Your photos of the area brought back good memories Drew. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Didn't know there was a fort on this. I've been up for the top a years back (nearly disappeared in the bracken on the way up, never to be see again). Nice little hill. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Yr Aran cairns / Fieldnotes by postman

I've been looking at the Historic Wales records and I think Yr Aran and Rhyd y Gethin are two names for the same group really. In particular I think Rhyd y Gethin III and Yr Aran I are probably the same cairn. It might be better to merge these two sites and add both names? thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Your photos capture the tumuli beautifully, and of course the spring trees shorn of leaves help capture their large size. moss Posted by moss

Fine pic(s)...and I must admit I didn't know about this site. My first reaction when seeing this pic was how much it reminded me of Droughduil in Dumfries and Galloway. There are other identical mounds, unexcavated, lurking in the forestry there. spencer Posted by spencer

This is very, very good. Lovely shot. It seems to hint at things other pictures of the RA at this site just dont catch... Maybe it is the reflected light from all the surrounding snow, stronger shadows cast, deeper definition, Low Spring Sun angle inflection... heck, I dunno... but its working for me. Brilliant.

Apologies for the poor photos, I was constantly wiping the lens to no avail, agree its a magic moment as the site is revealed through the trees.

Didn't sing Aikey Breaky Heart, however, did spend two days solid singing Purple Rain to myself, just changed the word from Purple to Scottish!

Giant's Grave (Holcombe) / Folklore by Rhiannon

Hi This is not a correct photo, The long barrow is on Charmborough Farm and not Southmead. The photos show a different field and are not the site. Whoever Hamish spoke to in 2005 was inventing history. For the record all of Southmead Farm has been ploughed (this field was growing potatoes and sweetcorn in the 70's). My family farmed Southmead from 1930's to the late 1990's. Posted by sharon mead

Yeah, this place has it all, that walk through the plantation sets you up nicely, spotting it through the trees....... can't believe it was almost exactly a year ago. ironstone Posted by ironstone

Yep, it was nice there. Although your powers deserted us at Loanhead of Daviot I seem to remember :) thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

I think the site had a lot more to offer, just difficult to find it when the rain is stinging your forehead, temperature not much above freezing and the wind trying to make you airborne, however, now I know who controls the weather I shall seek advice before my next visit. Posted by costaexpress

It does have a slightly weird feel, this place, doesn't it? Not the most evocative of sites though like you when I visited the weather wasn't particularly kind. ironstone Posted by ironstone

Ramsey Island / News by moss

I never knew we had reefs on our coastlines..... trouble is, CHERISH represents the politically correct namby pamby world we are living in now and no it will not actually have any solution for climatic erosion...... moss Posted by moss

Ramsey Island / News by moss

"Experts say the data could also be used to see if climate change affects the environment on the island."
"The survey was commissioned as part of the new EU funded Ireland-Wales project called CHERISH (Climate Heritage and Environments of Reefs, Islands and Headlands), which looks at investigating climate change and coastal heritage."

Cherish. Affects-the-environment (I wonder what the answer will be...). EU. Brilliant!
