Tomb of the Eagles

Chambered Cairn


One of the best things about this place is the Simpsons obvious enthusiasm for their prehistoric gem. Visitor centres aren't usually particularly inspiring, but the opportunity to talk with the fella who discovered it is a fine thing. The hands on approach makes the experience much more real.

As for the tomb itself, it's canny enough, though the sandbag placed outside to supposedly stop folk from shooting over the cliff if they exit too fast on the skateboard, is more likely to stop them getting minced by the fence.

I found the surroundings are as breathtaking as reported.
