Ring Cairn


Strange, I must've been to Long Meg at least a dozen times over the last few years but I have never been to Glassonby before. Well, this weekend, I decided to rectify that and am really glad I did.

I spotted the site over the hedge as we drove out of the village - take the left hand fork at the village centre and the circle is in a field on your right hand side.

The grass was quite high and the approach is lovely; the centre of the circle was covered with blue bells. It is hard to photograph, other than on the approach, so I took a video. No sunlight = no shadows so I didn't see any rock art.

Now I realise quite how easy it is to get to, I'll come back on a better day and spend more time here. Lovely.
