Been meaning to come back up here with a camera since this section of the moor was burnt off 5 or 6 years ago.
Now after so long the heather has grown back and much of the cairn cemetery is well hidden in the thick new growth.
Still visible are the 2 larger burial cairns, but hidden are 3 smaller ones and 3 small rings of kerb stones, although we possibly came across one of these rings a few metres away to the SE of the most southerly of the larger cairns.
