Damn you to blazes, Graham. Carn Liath opened my eyes to the potential quality of some of the long cairns hidden away in the area. Seems I'll need to return some time, then. Keep 'em coming. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Cheers G. I rather like this cairn - Its close proximity to modern farm buildings doesnt really detract from that timeless feel that so many of these monuments have.

Sure, its setting isnt as magical as Carn liath, but the sheer amount of surrounding bronze age evidence gives this cairn a relevance and context to my unimaginative modern mind.

Haste ye back........!
