11-09-07 Building on the Past

Someone has been very busy out at Carradale Point.

I walked out to the Point a few days ago and was surprised to discover this small stone structure close by the cairn.

It's quite sturdy and even with no roof provides a fair degree of protection from the wind. Presumably the stone to build it came from the cairn.

I wonder if they put in a Planning Application to the Council? ;)

There was plenty of wildlife to see on my walk there and back, including some of Carradale's feral goat herd, Gannets, Cormorants, Goosanders, Pond Skaters, a multitude of gulls, and what I'm fairly sure was a Kestrel.
