Blackford Hill (Carving)

I was inspired to check this out by Martin's posts, and visitied the carving on 14/01/07. A bit tricky to get to (in a gale), but once there I was rewarded with a seriously smooth little seat in the entrance to the little cave. It must have taken a lot of sitting to get it that smooth - this spot was once used a hell of a lot. The carving is pretty nifty, although I'd say I was more taken by the seat.

Walder's Low (Cairn(s))

I went on a mission to find this in September 2005. Very close to the village of Bolsterstone, Walder's Low can easily be accessed by walking across a couple of fields. The stones on top of the earth mound look as if they we were only placed there relatively recently.

Apronful of Stones (Bradfield) (Cairn(s))

I searched for this one-time 'vast carnedde' for about half an hour a few days before Christmas 2006. Even though heather had been burnt, I didn't find anything conclusive. A few small stones and some lumpy turf which looked to be covering a few clumped stones.
