Cairnpapple Hill is an historic site some 20kms west of Edinburgh.
It was used from about 3000 to 1400 BC.
It was firstly a ceremonial site and then later used for burials.
The area ahs been excavated and the cairn reconstructed in concrete. You can descend into the cairn hwere there is a reconstruction,
OK there is not a great deal to see at the site, but there are stunning views in all directions on a good day towards Edinburgh and the forth coastline especially.
