Been a poor year for me in many respects, with less day trips out than for pretty much any year for the last decade, very few mountains, no Scotland, and no days out with Chris, which rates as the biggest loss.

I've just done a quick count up though, and managed to visit about 130 sites (with groups of barrows counting as one), the majority of which I haven't been to before, including 10 stone circles that I haven't been to previously.

The best ones were probably:

Merrivale in January, on a lovely evening of low light: http://www.themodernantiquaria[...]lague_market_at_merrivale.html

A muddy trip to Dorset to three stone circles, two chambered tombs and my first bank barrow:

A beautiful spring Equinox trip to the Avebury landscape, with the highlight being the wonderful viewpoint cairn on Overton Down, which I revisited 6 months later:

The Cerrig Caerau and Lled Croen yr Ych stone circles and fabulous Yr Allor cairn in remote mid-Wales:

100 miles of coast path and some great chambered tombs on Ynys Mon, as well as lovely revisit to the Maen Hirion setting at Llanfechell:

A long trek to Nine Stones of Altarnun and Goodaver stone circles in a heat wave in June:

Finally getting to visit the fogous at Pendeen and Boleigh:

A very rewarding walk up Pen yr Ole Wen and Carnedd Dafydd in stunning scenery:

A long overdue trip to Duloe stone circle:

Wishing all on TMA the very best for 2018.
