Long Cairn


500 meters west and the long cairn can be found. To get here two deserted small farms must be past, they sit desolate like a ghost town unused for decades. I often wonder if some of the ancient tales were past down generation to generation only to vanish because of modernisation. Who knows?

Anyway this is the middle cairn of the group of three and looks straight down Park Hall valley to the Deveron way below. At some stage the long cairn was 45 meters in length but has met with some severe treatment. At least it still survives.

A much needed cup of tea and onto the next cairn only a short distance away. As for the temperature it had dropped to -11.
