Chambered Cairn


As a boy I walked up here many times. I visited again recently with my own children and saw the spiral for the first time. This is definately vandalism. It has only appeared within the last fifteen years.

In fact, on close inspection you can see where the lichen on the slab has been cut across. Lichen takes a very long time to grow, possibly hundreds of years, and not one bit of lichen can be seen in the groove. This has definately not come from antiquity. Sorry to dissapoint anyone.
