Ring Cairn


Wading through thigh high wet grass, soaked through to the skin, the approach to this site was exhilarating. As I reached the circle a couple of rabbits scattered from it's centre into the long grass. Looking back round, my route here was clearly visible in the tall grass. This all added a unique quality to my visit. The site was completely peaceful and teaming with wildlife.

Glassonby circle lies pretty close to Long Meg and Little Meg and is definitely worth a visit for it's remoteness in this Cumbrian backwater.
