Bell Hillock



I headed west from the Gallows Hillock heading past previous hikes and visits. It will easier to give the directions from Kirriemuir than give a huge list of wee villages and roads. From Kirriemuir head north on the B955 and take the third minor heading west. This leads past the north side of the Hill Of Redhall. After passing the trees pull into the first gate on the south side of the road. The cairn sits further to the south.

This cairn must have been some size and it still sits at 25 meters by 2 meters high. Nowadays it is turf covered with one or two stones poking through. Damage has been done by the usual houking and various excavations. Finds included a couple of cists, necklace, armlet and an urn. Set amongst beautiful it has wonderful views to the north west in an area teeming with prehistory.

A very easy walk on tractor tracks with the cairn clearly visible from the road.
