Bronze Age Standing Stone - Grimsay on the Rhinns
This was photographed a couple of weeks back after a wet walk across very boggy ground to the abandoned clearance village of Grimsay northe west of the Gearach Loch on the Rhinns. I had not visited it for a number of years, the last time being during the Spring. This time the bracken and grasses were much longer - and I had the impression that the willow scrub had spread significantly since my previous visit. This may, (or may not!) reflect a change in the land use in recent years with less intensive grazing by sheep.
