Earlier Meur burnt mound emergency dig

Last year the known burnt mound at Meur was removed to another site, now there is a larger and even earlier mound being excavated in the usual race against time.

Tres Ness (Chambered Cairn) — Fieldnotes

This chambered cairn will be taken by the sea in some years. It is directly situated at the current cliff edge and the weather keeps unveiling more and more of the interior. Perfect nesting ground for fulmars, though. Therefore always approach it from the sea if you want to respect the birds and don't want to be spat at. Luckily they always missed hitting me, so far.

Mount Maesry (Chambered Cairn) — Fieldnotes

I walked the long way to Mount Misery and all I found was joy.
This impressive cairn is meant to be of the Maes Howe type.
It has been used by the lighthouse keepers to store potatoes in the past, so they say.
It is now used by fulmars as a breeding place so when I went I didn't want to disturb my favourite birds too much. Otherwise it would have made as a great resting place.
