Drumashie Moor 3



We had looked for ages for the missing cairns and with time pushing on, we pushed on as well heading up through the wood back to the minor road going through Drumashie Moor.

Crossing the road we could see the reservoir and Loch Ashie to the south east. However we were looking for another cairn and this time we held straight east on the mainly dry heather.

A long time ago this cairn must have been massive. It still stands at almost 20m wide with a good number of kerbs and maybe the hints of cists still in place. Sadly, most of the cairn material has been robbed leaving scattered remnants which in parts reach 0.5m tall. However the visitor is compensated with superb views of Loch Ashie.

With that it was back to the car to head to Carn Glas (we'd been to several sites earlier much nearer Inverness), without any mishaps happening to me, I did get the chance to see A, my wife, do an action replay of falling backwards into a heathery puddle. Luckily it was a nice nice sunny October day!!!!
