Horizon to Horizon…

Isle of Arran, Sunday, 30th October, 2022

***

***

In 1910, local man, Mister Sim was

recorded saying that as a young lad

he remembered the centre of the circle of stones

flat and cairn free, which, if true, makes something of

a mockery of the artists impression carried by the information board.

How long will it be before that little

snippet of folk lore is conveniently forgotten

or put down to ‘false memory’?

***

***

The ‘kerb stones’ certainly resemble

regular standing stones.

***

 

***

But then, one man’s horizon line

is another man’s flat earth!

***

***

And there was still a sun up there

behind the clouds…

***

***

Which could only bode well

for the rest of the day?
