Taversöe Tuick Cairn

June - Peter Chamberlin

A small grassy cairn with an ancient stone entranceway, and a modern metal gate, stands high on a hillside overlooking the sea and small islands beyond.
Taversöe Tuick Cairn, on the island of Rousay in the Orkney Isles, dates from somewhere between 4500-2000 BCE.

It's quite an undertaking to visit remote sites like this, but it is uniquely rewarding. Reflecting on thousands of years of human life, hundreds of generations, and considering where we are now is a grounding experience.
