The furthest east of the two cairns is probably slightly better preserved, it is also was the place of execution were a few witches met an untimely end.

Big kerbs remain in place especially on the south, towards the north the kerb is more spaced out, most likely robbed. Field clearance has been dumped in the middle.

A great way, to end a very early start and late finishing day. The legs had gone so I made my way back to the car and headed home via the misty Cairn O Mount.
