NG8327 : Gate into Angel's Hill burial ground

taken 7 years ago, near to Kirkton, Highland, Great Britain

Gate into Angel's Hill burial ground
Gate into Angel's Hill burial ground
An almost circular iron fence surrounds a small burial ground on the top of this small hill near Kirkton. The fence follows the line of a former wall - parts of it are still visible - which is remains of an Iron Age Dłn which once stood here. The indistinct steep path up the hill, visible in this picture, is the only access to the burial ground - not an easy climb for the pallbearers.

Footnote: Geograph Moderator James Yardley has pointed out that the Gaelic name for this hill is Cnoc nan Aingeal, which translates as 'Hill of the Angels', so the singular Angel in the popular English spelling of the name of the hill should strictly be a plural (Angels').
