You are looking down on the remains of a pre-historic site used from 3500BC for 4000 years. People have left their mark here for over 5500 years!
The different ditches and circles you can see date from different periods in pre-history, showing that over the millennium this hill top site remained an important place in the lives & rituals of the peoples who lived in this area of Scotland.
People still make pilgrimages to this place today. Look around and find the Custodian's Hut where a small exibition helps you learn and interpret the site and its past. Descend the ladder down into the main cairn which is a concrete dome allowing the visitor to see its secrets. Look around the horizon and find the telecommunication mast from the 20th Century. This hill-top site is as important in today's society as it was 5500 years ago!
Wondering how this shot was taken? Look in the sky!
