Cairnpapple Hill
A glance at a map could lead one to believe that the summit of Cairnpapple Hill lies close to the aerial but it is in fact close to the foreground trig point, which is a couple of metres higher than the other location. Beside the aerial there's a 'henge and cairn', an historic burial site. [[LinkExternal link]]
