Where did folk live?

Select a forum:
I was having a little think yesterday which is never good for my brain.

Am I missing the obvious here?

Take 3 regions in the highlands.

Strath of kildonan - tons of cairns also tons of hut circles.
Lairg/Bonar Bridge area - tons of cairns and again tons of hut circles.
Area round Ledmore - tons of cairns everywhere but where are the hut circles??

Where did the folk live that built all the chambered cairns round Ledmore/Cnoc Chaornaidh? Does the lack of hut circles on the map round there seem a little odd? Maybe I'm wrong in trying to connect chambered cairns with hut circles? But the builders of these round Ledmore must of lived somewhere. Anyway head's still hurting so I'm off for a brew.
