Line of posts on mountain ridge
Line of posts on mountain ridge
The paired posts are along a stretch of the ridge connecting Meall Buidhe, (sunlit in the distance), and Beinn Odhar.
The posts are not fence posts - they're only about 30 cm high. They are the remains of a curious electrical system where at least one small wind turbine placed at a col generated power which was then conveyed by low-level wires attached to the posts - black plastic insulators can be seen on some of them.
