Hold onto your shorts; we covered a lot of ground today, the weather included blue skies (!!!). Here’s a great sample from our day, and yet I am skipping many beautiful moments captured without the help of Kodak.
Moors in the glaciated mountains…at least, I’m pretty sure this vegetation qualifies as moors.
Kilmartin Glen Neolithic ritual landscape…one of the rock cairns.
Kilmartin Glen standing stone with pecked “cup marks.” No idea what they were meant to convey.
Dunadd landform from afar. Dun means fort, usually always a fort atop a high-point.
View northish from the summit of Dunadd, from the part described as the great hall and citadel. The later occupation here maybe began in the late 500s and lasted into the 900s. This was the capital of the native Scoti peoples and their “empire” Dál Riata….
Now, back to the present….
Loch Lomond. We did not cruise it.
Active logging, Scottish style. The log piles show the neatest/tidiest stacking jobs I’ve ever seen. Still hurts to see trees whacked in their prime….
