WARNING: Picture post to follow.
On a sunny Saturday not so long ago I went on my first university sanctioned, lecture related field trip to some lovely archeological sites in South East Scotlnad.
SITE ONE: At the end of rather narrow lane which the bus driver took with alarming speed. At the top of a blustery hill. Castlelaw, the site of many a settlement.
On one side of the site was farmland chock full o’ sheep. On the other side, a military shooting range with loud red flags warning us of imminent danger.
You can see what side I chose.
Yonder lies a loch. What ho!
Thar she is, Iron Age Hillfort complete with sheep poo a go go. Just look at those earthwork ramparts. I pine, I perish…..
