Balantrath (Broch) — Fieldnotes

13/05/2015 - Just a short walk upriver from Dunbeath broch are the remains of Balantrath broch. The walk along the bank of Dunbeath Water between the two is lovely. This broch is pretty overgrown but the location is good. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Langwell (Chambered Cairn) — Fieldnotes

12/05/2015 - Nice chambered cairn on the south side of Langwell Water. A lot of the stones have been removed but enough of the stones that make up the chambers remain to still get a good idea of what it was like. Well worth a visit, I liked my time there (only slightly spoiled by the caterpillar tracks right through the middle of cairn) thelonious Posted by thelonious

Dirlot (Stone Row / Alignment) — Fieldnotes

11/05/2015 - On the way back from Backlass stone circle we had a look at these stone rows at Dirlot. Parking in a nearby passing place, it's a short walk to the site. The stones are small and quite hidden in the heather. It was fun walking the side of the hill trying to find the rows. Canmore state 'possibly twenty rows', we didn't find that many but there are a good few visible. Two small cairns are situated on the knoll just above the rows. Worth a look. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Backlass (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

11/05/2015 - A visit to Backlass stone circle makes for a lovely walk in the wide, open landscape of Caithness. We took the good single track road (plenty of passing places) from the A9 at Mybster to a parking area about 1 km west of Strathmore Lodge. From there it's about a 7 mile round trip to Backlass, nice flatish walk, track all the way. I love this area and the walk alone is worth going for. A real feeling of loneliness in a big landscape where everything looks so far away. The stone circle is in the long deserted township of Backlass. Five stones remain but a few more potentials are in the surrounding stone walls. The weather was good and we sat for a while by the circle and had our sandwiches. It was hard to leave and make the slow walk back to the real world. Great site and day. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Craig Halligarry (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Fieldnotes

10/05/2015 - Afternoon walk up Beinn Dubhain from Baile an Or. We took a slight detour on the way down to visit this stone. Well worth the effort. Great cup and ring marks and a lovely view from it. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Carn Laggie (Long Cairn) — Fieldnotes

10/05/2015 - If you fancy a trip along Strath of Kildonan to visit the many fantastic sites there, this one is a good way to start your day off. Easy access across the golf course just outside Helmsdale. It's a nice location and a decent long cairn. thelonious Posted by thelonious
