There's another 'unsubstantiated', yet massive cairn upon South Black Hill in the Pentlands which, to me, makes no sense unless complementing the one on nearby Carnethy Hill

Guess the point is there just aren't enough 'official' resources to visit and note everything...


I do really like the look of Gladman's Cairn - to give it its now official title :-) on South Black Hill. The connection with the cairn on Carnethy Hill just felt strong when walking the hills between them. It's a mystery that I'd love to know the answer to.

Here's a view over the top of it. It's massive. Got to thank you again Gladman for posting the images of it a few years back. We've been lucky to have a few good days out there because of it.

I still like the look of this cairn near summit of Ward Hill on Hoy too.

Upland cairns are so tricky.


There is one unrecorded but on top of Craigowl (above all the rock art near the masts) as well which also is high on the list.
