Gourdon Hill

Long Barrow


After finding the cairn on Droop Hill, it proved to be a frustrating day of climbing hills, finding nothing i.e. three cairns on Banff Hill all gone.

It proved to be a similar story for the cairn on Shakil Hill, slightly to the north of the nearby Gourdon Long Cairn (also known as Bikmane).

From Shakil Hill I got an interesting angle to look at its famous neighbour, worth the short walk to the top, use the gate near the masts. Also from the top of Gourdon to look back and see the top of Shakil.

Always nice to visit Gourdon, pity about Shakil.
