Cairn, Glenrath Heights
Cairn, Glenrath Heights
A cairn sits amongst moss on the spur between Fash Cleuch and Whitson's Cleuch. The cairn has probably attracted perching birds which have affected the local vegetation.
Cairns like this are used for navigation by shepherds. I once met somebody who admitted to having got lost on his hill farm, even though he had worked there for thirty years.
