...Is the area very populated at present as much of it would be from the distant past I suppose and mainly revisited by both the continuation of ancient beliefs as you say, and possibly in homage to our great ancestors and also more recent departures close to a bereft persons heart.

Not at all populated.... the nearest big town is Fort William quite some distance away.. raises the point as to whether these cairns are the work of travellers - arguably not the sort of thing your average tourist would do (?) - or people from a wider area making use of a spot with local folklore and tradition. Guess that's what I'm trying to establish? Does anyone know of any such folklore for the area?
