Kilchoan of Poltalloch



One thing that struck me about this place was the excellent view that standing the terrace to the north would give. I didn't have the time or inclination to run up to check it out, but I bet a good view of the remains of the cairn could be had from up there.

The ground around the cairn is ridiculously uneven, the fairly dry parts were ankle-twistingly rutted, the surface obscured by grass, and the boggier bits were at least 8 inches deep in quagmire (They may have been deeper, but I pulled my foot out).

Yet the cairn itself is rather nice. I'd love to see it in winter when the undergrowth is asleep.
