Ring Cairn


Mowat Newton 3

The remnants of this ring cairn are scattered amongst plates of living rock, alas I couldn't find any rock art. Basically all thats left is a small circular ditch, where the stones should be. Only one kerb remains. Sadly a pile of stones a few meters away indicates their final resting place.

Only the views to north, south, and west save this site. This should have been a magnificent place instead it resembles a rubbish dump. Soon this site will vanish perhaps no bad thing considering its former status. Very sad place!
