NH8270 : Beacon, Hill of Nigg

taken 17 years ago, near to Castlecraig, Highland, Great Britain

Beacon, Hill of Nigg
Beacon, Hill of Nigg
Jubilee beacon on the summit of Hill of Nigg. Was to be lit a few hours later.

This is a lowland site and will recover, but sadly these things are lit on delicate high summits by unthinking vandals celebrating an undemocratic medieval anachronism.
