Halliggye Fogou


Halliggye Fogou (Fogou) by MelMel On the left is the side passage. If I was on my own, I wouldn't have had the guts to go down and take this photo. One of my favourite sites, as it had the power to frighten me.

I agree completely. We got there at dusk, not realising we'd need a torch! Luckily we found a small pencil torch. I'm afraid of tunnels, the dark and am claustrophobic! But was determined to go right inside. I'm so glad I did. What a wonderful place.
It didn't get rid of my phobias, but I'd do it again.

Good on you, my friend!

I've not been to this one yet, but went to Carn Euny a few years back and that was great, too.

Not sure I agree with the official 'grain storage' explanations, though.
