Flamstone Pin is noted locally as being a sacred hill and is supposed to have an ancient burial site. On my visit I found a possible cairn that was little more that a flattened area of stones. The Name Flamstone Pin certainly makes it of antiquarian interest and it's location - close to two IA hillforts and at the highest point in these hills makes it a strong contender for ancient activity.
