Crabs Cairn



Visited: May 12, 2015

Revealed at last!

After years of neglect, during which this Bronze Age Cairn on Aberdeen's Tullos Hill lay almost totally hidden under a thick blanket of gorse, a pathway has at last been opened up to its grassy summit.

There's still not a lot to see of this tumbledown cairn, but in early summer it opens up an amazing vista over swathes of yellow flowering gorse.

It must have been cleared in the past 4-6 weeks as I visited Tullos Hill earlier in the year, and the cairn was almost totally hidden. LesHamilton Posted by LesHamilton
