Carmont Hill



From Square's Knap head downhill then follow the fence to the top of the hill which leads straight to the Carmont Cairn, north west. I've known were Carmont has been all the time but never visited.

It is similar to the cairns at the Tower of Johnson and the Cairn of Shiels in that it is made up of well rounded pebbles.

Being over 16m wide and almost 1m tall it has impressive all round views. The one major surprise is the proximity of the A90.

A great cairn, a great place but sadly its near neighbour has all but gone.
