Yeah, there did seem to be a lot.... thankfully not Highland Coos, though. Or bulls. I wouldn't be anywhere near so cocky then, rest assured!! GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

I love this shot. You go where others fear to tread. By others, I mean me.

Bute has some amont of cows on it! I spent 4 days dodging them and luckily never came this close!

It was a wonderful surpise. I didn't even know it was a long cairn until I got there. Your photos of it are quality by the way. First time on Bute for me and I really enjoyed the whole island. thelonious Posted by thelonious

So glad you went here. I really do think it is, all in all, one of Scotland's finest long cairns. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

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

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! :-)
