Hully Hill Monument (Artificial Mound) — Fieldnotes


this is the first site from the book that I was lucky enough to have visited as a newcomer to the world of megalithic remains. even though some of the previous fieldnotes and photographs sadly depicted some graffiti I can confirm that the stones had undergone a deep clean and are back to their former glory with a family of rabbits running around the Monument.

also uploaded are two screenshot / photographs from the OS Maps Mobile App. 1). an enlarge section of the Map. & 2). an aerial photograph of the site.

Tormain Hill (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Fieldnotes

28/01/2019 – Early morning bus out to Wilkieston from Edinburgh (big thumbs up to the Edinburgh bus network, cheap and you can get a bus nearly anywhere). Good access, sign posted path to the top of Tormain Hill from the north. We reached the stones just before sunrise. Lovely open woodland setting. I think we counted seven stones with cup marks on them. The pick of the bunch is the one with the cup and ring markings, it’s very good indeed. Really enjoyed our visit here. It was pretty special watching the sun rise from behind the Pentland Hills to slowly light up the stones and surrounding area, magic. thelonious Posted by thelonious
