Cairn at the Cliffs

Eclectic Landscape

Recently installed cairn at the Cliffs of Glassy. There are 3 of these rock formations in the residents side meditation garden. In modern times, cairns are often erected as landmarks, a use they have had since ancient times. Since prehistory, they have also been built as sepulchral monuments, or used for defensive, hunting, ceremonial, astronomical and other purposes.
