Cairnpapple, one of the most significant prehistoric monuments in Scotland. Located in the Bathgate Hills, West Lothian in the south-east Lowlands.
The archaeology on the main site here spans a remarkable period of some 4000 years of activity, from about 3500 BC through to c.500 AD, with its major features being a Neolithic henge and circle, followed by a series of three Bronze Age cairns with cist burials, and a Late Iron Age cemetery.
A couple relax on the cairnpapple hill taking in the summer sunset as the fireweed I chose to use as the foreground subject lit up in a blazing glory before the sun disappeared quickly below the clouded horizon.
