Muir of Allangrange

Chambered Cairn

Muir of Allangrange (Chambered Cairn) by thesweetcheat Looking south. The long rubble bank can be seen in the background.

The telescope-shaped tower commemorates Sir Hector MacDonald ("Fighting Mac"), a crofter's son who joined the army as a private in 1870 and died an enormously decorated Major General in 1903. That'll be a warrior chief's monument I guess.
