Wideford Hill

Chambered Cairn

Wideford Hill (Chambered Cairn) by GLADMAN So good... they named it after a TMA member....

Approaching the wondrous chambered cairn, the outlook toward the Bay of Firth will not take second billing. I've attempted to highlight some further monuments - including the stunning Cuween Hill - as best I can.

Guess because it's unexpected on Orkney (unless you've been before and know better). Walk 'round the corner and think ... 'now if I was going to build a monument I'd place it... oh. Right where it is'. Utterly top drawer. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

I love that bay. Would I be right in thinking the sea level would have been a lot lower when Wideford was built? thelonious Posted by thelonious
