Always good to leave something for next time. I really wanted to visit the Cateran Hole nearby, just too far that day. thelonious Posted by thelonious

I came here eight or nine years ago but didn't have time for the rock art or the hill fort, it made me mad! so I'm back, with more time, but is there ever really enough time? postman Posted by postman

Carrowkeel-Keshcorran Complex / Fieldnotes by GLADMAN

Seeing Ryaner's first pic of the Caves of Kesh lead me to explore TMA and found these, had no idea. What a place! One day... spencer Posted by spencer

I was quite surprised to see this site turn up on here. I visited about 25 years ago on a snowy New Years Day with some cronies. We were staying at Kentra for a week. I think the chamber was pretty big (and high) and the nearby dog carving you mention was a surprise. I do have photos somewhere but they'll be film prints - the analogue days! There was also a pretty brutal carving of a crucifixion where the body was quite contorted and looked in real discomfort. High quality Argyll School.
It is an odd little corner.

If anything it's taken from the west, I was there the day before yesterday and took a photo from the south west, it's very similar. postman Posted by postman

Don't suppose your friends fancy having a go at the Buttern Hill Stone Circle on Dartmoor? That would really be a cracker to restore as well. This looks great... well worth coming back to see again. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

As one who has long argued for careful restoration of sites such as this I take my metaphorical hat off to you; I could think of many others which would benefit from similar treatment. ironstone Posted by ironstone

If I'd been a bit earlier all the cloud was a deep orange/red with a most glorious sunrise, I'm getting close. postman Posted by postman

These weren't this year... but I dug them out having finally just been up the other Beinn na Caillich above Kylerhea and looking across. Blown away by that, too. Guess it takes a fellow adventurer to appreciate what these places mean. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
