Well, there was time some years ago when we were photographing the Clava Cairns (the famous Balnuaran Group), a large coachtrip of Italian tourists arrived and they promptly began using the interiors of the two passage graves as toilets. It was very civilised, men in one, women in the other, they formed orderly queues in the passages.

Then a particularly agile gent shinned up one of the playing card circle stones and performed handstands on the top to the enthusiastic applause of his companions.

It was like the circus had come to town, but not in a good way......

Luckily, we had already photographed the rock art in the interiors.
