Ardgilzean Cottage



With night fast approaching I headed for the huge cairn at Ardgilzean. After being given permission to park I made my way, west, along the farm track. Today the cairn stands at 32m wide and is 2.5m tall (I would think they should add a meter to that. Sadly most of the visible stones are tonnes upon tonnes of field clearance. Not much of the original cairn can be seen.

The north / south east has best views of what originally stood. Future years will, no doubt, see these parts covered up as well.

Still the night hasn't fallen completely, so a chance to visit a couple of nearby sites.
