As luck would have it I 'had' to pass the Glebe cairn to get back to the B+B - honest!

On my last visit I settled for a view from the museum cafe due to the rain. But, as we all know, that isn't the same as a proper visit. It was getting dark and I didn't have long.

I walked over the top of the cairn - not sure if this is the 'done thing' - but it seemed the natural thing to do. Just me, the sheep and a large pile of grey stones. I crossed the field in the gloom and headed up the hill to the B+B. And back to reality............

The perfect site to 'visit' in the rain. I sat in the visitor's centre with a hot cup of tea and a cake and looked at the site through the conservatory windows - this is the life!! Posted by CARL

This site is definitely worth seeing! Okay, like landells says, it is a pile of old stones, at the end of the day - but seen up close and in context with the other sites in this group it completes the picture. This is more like the other sites would have looked in their final stages of development, after all. The cairn looked wonderful in the frost. IronMan Posted by IronMan
