A Stony Mound
A Stony Mound
I am intrigued by the heaps of stones above the lochside path. Normally a pile of cobbles like this would suggest that they have been deposited by the sea, but that's not a likely story here. If brought by ice, they would be in a matrix of mud and smaller stones, and if brought by humans, why did they not bring bigger ones, as is more usual in prehistoric sites - and in any case, why would they have dumped them on the slope here rather than building them into a cairn?
