Carn Challard / Fieldnotes by drewbhoy

You’ve a knack of finding sites in the most outstanding locations loon!

Sluggan bridge and the old Wade road to Slochd is full of history (and not just the Jacobite stuff). Family connections just outside Carrbridge Took us up there on many gorgeous summer afternoons.

Difficult to find, but the walk from Carrbridge to the site is through gorgeous scenery, the bridge is worth a visit Strathie. More sites in the area apparently :-) drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy

It was indeed a great day. Maybe turbulent, maybe just showing off to the neighbours ("the Joneses have upgraded to multivallate I see"). thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

You picked a great day for walking the Hillfort, wonderful views out to the neighbouring forts, so many of them, must have been turbulent times. Posted by costaexpress

Lovely set of old prints, particularly like the Viking runes in this one. Spurred me on to read a bit more about David MacRitchie, what an interesting fellow Posted by costaexpress

Well worth your time, it was way better than my expectations, one of my favourite sites of last year. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

"Suffice to say, if I was a lumberjack, I wouldn't be alright."

Best line ever.

Skipsea Castle / Folklore by Johnnyboy

That's cool, an account of a sighting of the White Lady! Yes you'd like to think that if a ghost didn't mind hanging around for nigh on a thousand years, they might really be something more elemental and ancient.
I like the water in the ditch around the mound in your photos.
We drove up the coast one year and I remember stopping at Hornsea and Flamborough Head, but why not at Skipsea Castle?! Another time maybe.

Lamington Park Long Cairn / Fieldnotes by GLADMAN

Thanks. Felt I had to get something down for this one since, as you say, there is a very unusual vibe about the area GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Excellently written Gladman! The cairn certainly sits within a very strange section of forestry...... strathspey Posted by strathspey

Some great photos of Ardlair on this site. I have used Huntly as a base for exploring on a couple of occasions, and seeing how close this site is, I realise just how little Ive seen. Posted by costaexpress

Just like the wee stones near Ardlair as well, oddly out of place as you say :-) drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy

Thanks, think you would love it, my second visit to these parts and thoroughly enjoyed it, however, need to go back again, typical January, some days were just too misty to wander out onto the open moors alone (for me that is, doubtless others would) and I missed a few places that I've wanted to see for a while now.

That looks a fab circle. One day I'll visit D&G, you're getting to some great sites. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

West Kennett Avenue / Miscellaneous by Rhiannon

Surprised this wasn't censored by the War Office, giving away troop movements, location and tank numbers to the enemy spies (okay, the war hadn't started quite yet).

We should see if we can find the graffiti.

That's a great viewpoint, good place to go without a sense of smell. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Low Hauxley Submerged Forest / Image by thesweetcheat

Cleveland Way does look nice. Walked a few little bits of it which I enjoyed.

I've always wanted to do the St Cuthbert’s Way. One day hopefully.

I was reading a few day's back about the John o' Groats Trail, which I'd not heard of before. Looks good, maybe a bit long for me though but I do love the east coast side of that part of Britain.
