Bernie Bell: Bernie & Mike’s Road Trip – Spring 2017

Bernie Bell (small bear) and Mike go on a road trip


A bit of a mixture…………..

Saturday 29th April – continuing – The Dunchraicaig walk – cairn amid monkey-puzzle trees!. Then along to Balnachraig rock art outcrop ( a kindly shower of rain showed off the cup and ring carvings).

Then back past the cairn again, to Ballymeanoch standing stones, cairn  and henge.  River stones. (BB The over-view on the information  board, gives a better picture of it, than the ones which we took.)

More BB – You’ll see that there is a river running by this site. It has some interesting little stones in it.  Some of these stones, have metal in them, which links with the importance of this area in the Iron Age both as a source and a trade route.)

Then on to the ‘Tileworks’ walk at the Moine Mhor – a little bit of magic with tiles set into the path
