NH8270 : Beacon, Hill of Nigg

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.
