Mid Gleniron I and II

Chambered Tomb

Fieldnotes

Visited 04.10.18

Following in GLADMAN's footsteps there were two coincidences. I ran into a friendly farmer but forgot to ask his name. He was relaxed about me visiting the cairns. Secondly I also had "bovine bovver". Mid Gleniron I & II are in the same field 100 yards apart. Mid Gleniron II is close to the dyke but Mid Gleniron I is in the middle of the field. Mid Gleniron I was surrounded by a large bull and beef cattle. I have visited it before so I reluctantly decided to miss it out this time. However Mid Gleniron II was close to the dyke so I explored it instead. It has been extensively robbed out but I did discover a Bullean stone near the top of the cairn as a bonus.
Canmore ID 61594 gives an interesting overview of Mid Gleniron I's evolution through time. Canmore ID 61608 tells the sad tale of Mid Gleniron II's decline.
