Ring Cairn


This place will stay in my memory for a long time, it is the place where my trusty SLR, which over the past 22 years has travelled with me from the arctic to the tropics, finally gave up the ghost.
The cairn is a splendid ruin, even in the horizontal rain. Just before we reached the circle Stu said "I wish the sun would come out". His wish was promptly granted, but then just as we arrived at the cairn, the heavens opened, goddamn Loki.
It took us an age to suss out the cup and ring. Stan must have taken hundreds of photos or been extremely lucky, to capture it for his Cumbrian rock art book.

There's a curious narrow, linear rubble feature just a few metres to the south of the cairn that's worth looking out for.
