    More cup-and-rings Discovered

    Post  Paulus on Sun Jul 10, 2011 6:53 am

    On our walk yesterday above Timble, we were fortunate in relocating some prehistoric cairns, another cairn circle, and several cup-marked stone and a fine cup-and-ring. I'll add some of the profiles onto TNA later, but here's a couple of images of what we found:





    We found a number of single and larger cairns scattered about, with lengths of Bronze Age walling. We're gonna go back up for a better look round and see what else is in the area as it seems there's a larger settlement area not far away. If anyone fancies a wander up here with us, gizza shout - though remember that it's all off-track and thru' deep heather & bogs in places.

    The write-up for the nearby cairnfield will emerge in due course.
