Maen Llia / Image by GLADMAN

The little bump about a third of the way upslope from the sun is where it sets on the Equinox and the thorn tree on the right hand side of Maen Llia marks about Beltane time. It had to be somewhere in between.
If I ever do corner you up there I'll bore you silly with stuff like this.

Pettico Wick / Fieldnotes by spencer

I think you'll like the paired cliff fort just round the coast spencer. Was surprised none of these sites were on TMA already.

I liked Coldingham, had a brief mooch before coming here, although it was raining and very cold.

Ooh, moody. I'd take a guess on early April or September. You dodged me again. Posted by cerrig

Yeah, great coast. I recall I stayed as Coldingham YH many moons back. Although not within scope of TMA, Tantallon further up the coast, is, for me, one of Scotland's finest castles. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Apparently, the 'ancestors' came from Loch Rannoch-way... so guess just trying to sow a seed. Or two. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Middleton Moor / Fieldnotes by stubob

This barrow is well worth a visit if you are in the area. Views from the barrow are corkin' as stubob says and extensive in almost every direction.
It is actually best approached from the village of Middleton. Park in the car park next to the Nelson Arms, which is a public car park.
Go up Water Lane opposite, bending right at the top of the hill. Follow the lane until you get to a gate. Go through or over the gate and follow an indistinct track towards the wind turbines. You will eventually reach a boundary fence which you follow steeply uphill to the left. This will lead you to the barrow.

Apparently an RSC. These have been languishing on a memory stick for about 5 years now. I've found a few bits maybe worth sharing from then. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
