Happened to come across a rather remarkable cairn field above Glen Garry (or thereabouts) during the recent Scotland trip... quite a moving site (see image), numerous small cairns bearing messages to loved ones - presumably deceased - the context clearly paying homage to the fantastic view. There's also similar activities going on beside the Cairn O'Mount cairn in Aberdeenshire; I seen a bit in Ireland, too.

Any thoughts? Is this a genuine continuation of ancient beliefs, or just an admission that monotheistic religion has failed certain groups of people?

This might be an explanation Robert. Came across it while in Bristol today (and obviously only applies to Bristol/North Somerset area). Have a look at the blog, there are some examples very similar to your photo.
