Cattle might be a problem
by eamonoc  21 Apr 2017
On 20/4/2017, at 07.4am drove to L 65405 59318 A, at area noted as Tievegariff on OS sheet 37. Parked opposite old abandoned cottage, went through gate and onto a well made farm tack uphill to two old stone sheds and a cattle feeder. Much evidence here of cattle traffic, although there were none about this early. The ground was deeply rutted but reasonably dry, went behind shed to the right towards a low fence crossed this and headed uphill to the big cairn as mentioned by markwallace, there was another little rocky knoll about 80mts due west which I thought was higher than area where the Cairn stands.
