Chambered Cairn


Summer 2000

Carrying on my weird weekend, I came to Cairnholy 1&2. Up the narrow track, meeting some hoorahs in their 4WD on the way I eventually got out of the car in Brilliant Sunshine.

What nobody seems to mention is that Cairnholy 1 is in a fantastic position high above Wigtown Bay. The Sea was Sparkling Blue, a cool breeze lapped at me as I lay on the grass chilling.

Cairnholy II is further up the track in an equally cool location, but the nearby farm somehow spoils it for me.

A Cool place. Going Back soon!
