Kirkbuddo Cairn (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

The Kirkbuddo or Gallows Hill Cairn is a very easy site to find sitting on an easily spotted mound next to the B9127 near Kirkbuddo House. I asked permission to park and visited the site in the pouring rain. Thankfully it's a short walk.

This must have been a huge monument, it still stands at 25m wide being almost 4m high. However it has been severely damaged. Obviously at some point a few people have had their lives ended here also.

Water tanks and related buildings have been built into the site, ironically the remains of the cairn look much better than the efforts built in 1905.

Still, a worthwhile visit.

Strone Hill East (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

Once finished with the multiple sites at the west side of Strone Hill it's time head over the top of the hill to the site on the east. This a gentle climb amongst grass and heather, nothing serious. The walk is only halted by a fence next to the field which houses the cairn.

Sadly this well sized cairn has had a fair amount of field clearance dumped on top of it as well as a bit of houking. However several kerbs remain place around the edge of the 14m wide site, standing at just below 1m.

By this time it was getting dark, Brankam and Welton Hills will have to wait for another day.

A fine end to a fine day.

Strone Hill (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

Certainly one of the smallest stone circles I've seen but also one of the best for being surrounded in prehistoric sites. In this case you practically trip over them.

From Mid Strone head North west into the centre of the plateau. One stone barely stands, the other three appear to have fallen.

Still doing the music, following that team and getting lost in the hills! (Some Simple Minds, Glasvegas, Athlete, George Harrison, Empire Of The Sun, Nazareth on the headphones, good boots and sticks, away I go!)
