Armadale

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery

Fieldnotes

Visited 31.7.13

Directions:
Just above the beach at Armadale Bay – next to where the ferry leaves from Skye to the Scottish Mainland.


Karen went for her customary latte and a wander around the shops while I took the children for a play on the beach whilst we waited for the ferry.

The Barrow is very easy to spot (centrally positioned above the beach) and would have been a prominent feature to the ancient sea farers.
These days the Barrow is covered in brambles, long grass and a large tree.

Well worth a look if you are ever here for the ferry or for a look around the excellent photographic shop/gallery of Grumpy George!
