Castle Hill (Hillfort) — Fieldnotes

02/06/2018 - Nice little hillfort above Largs. Easy access from Douglas Park below. Path is a little steep in places. Great views from it and a fine place for a sit. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Haylie (Chambered Tomb) — Fieldnotes

02/06/2018 - Managed to get proper lost looking for this one. At least now I could go on Mastermind with the 'Backstreets of Largs' as my specialist subject!

Turned out it is dead easy once you look at the map properly and follow a few signs. Head through Douglas Park to the back and arrows point you to the right and the cairn - simple!

Don't let the town location put you off going to see this one. It's nicely tucked away in a slightly overgrown area of trees and tall grass. Very, very green and sunny today. The heat was something else as well.

The cairn is great. I liked this one. Bigger than I thought it would be.

There is an uphill path behind it to a viewpoint and hillfort which is well worth doing if you have the time.

Bizzyberry Hill (Hillfort) — Fieldnotes

26/05/2018 - Starting from Biggar we took the small path off the A702 (NT 04673824). It's just after the new housing estate and a bit easy to miss. The path goes straight up through the trees then turns right through tall gorse. After that, cross a couple of fields and a final climb up to the top.

It was a busy Saturday in Biggar so it was nice to get away from the rush and spend a peaceful hour or so on Bizzyberry Hill (great name). Sunshine was lovely and the views fine.

I enjoyed my visit to this one.
