Aye and DB is doing a grand job of sharing it with us. I'm still amazed at how much of prehistory survives in Aberdeenshire in such an intensively farmed area. Haste ye back!! Your reports and pics have been well received in this corner of the Highlands. strathspey Posted by strathspey

Craigshannoch (left), Mither Tap (hillfort middle) and Oxen Craig (cairn right). Oxen Craig is higher than the Mither Tap by 10 feet. drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy

Many thanks Strathie. Drew deserves the credit for the site selection too, all of which were great choices but not "show" sites.

Thanks for the extra info there Drew.

Your are welcome, to the far right just below the treeline is the ancient settlement of Tillymuick. You could spend a lifetime looking at/for places between the Tap and Benn. drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy
