Good for you. Perhaps more importantly, though.... good for the cairns that some people can be arsed to get off their arse and go see them .... and others like them. I've a feeling there's many more such images to come from your camera. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

I've a feeling your feeling is pretty much spot on, i'll never be a Gladman, but if I can get up half as many as you I will consider it a good one.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Yeah, and living in south-east England I'll never be a Postman. Treat every climb as if it's your last and regard the landscape with awe for its beauty - and respect for what it can do to you.... and I'm sure you won't go far wrong. These monuments were clearly sited to make them bloody difficult to get to, a bit like the cave art only nutty potholers can see, so every image is a triumph in my opinion, a blow against apathy. I've been asked 'who in their right mind would expend so much effort to see a pile of old rocks'? I'd turn that around. Who, if they truly value their mind, wouldn't?

Citizens Cairn'd, indeed.

"Who, if they truly value their mind, wouldn't?"

Can't argue with that. I'm never happier than up on one of these places, and TMA has been almost entirely responsible for it. Right on.
