Stones on Hill of Laxowater, Shetland
Stones on Hill of Laxowater, Shetland
The peculiar aspect to this photo is how to explain the presence of this collection of stones which are on top of 0.3-0.4m of eroded peat. Were they placed there in recent times? Are they the remains of an old cairn which has collapsed as some 2m of peat have eroded? Any suggestions?
