Cairnpapple was a bit of a random stop on our Historic Scotland trail - we were looking for somewhere not too far to take Parsnip a walk and ended up here. As you can tell, it was blustery, damp kind of day - the guide looked super pleased to see us when we walked in, so I'm guessing the weather put people off a bit! Cairnpapple is a burial site on top of a hill dating back to the Bronze Age. To be honest, there wasn't a lot to see on the actual site but on a good day the view would be fantastic. We went down into one of the oldest graves and had a wander round the cremation holes, then we left and walked through a field on the other side of the road. We found an old shelter and some cool stone formations over there - including a Happy Birthday message written in bricks, can you see it? - then walked up another hill to examine the distance markers. There was some evidence that this was a good place for rolling eggs at Easter, judging by all the broken bits of painted shell on the way up!
