There must be so many such abandoned structures up that way, the bones of a life style that's so much less common these days, Dougie.
A reminder of past times.

Massive boulder with the sophistication of the stretcher stones to hold them together. OK I'm an anorak over dry stone walling techniques...

I remember when I lived in East Lancashire seeing all the dry stone walls and wondering at the sheer amount of skilled labour that went into building them.
An interesting image Dougie. Very nicely compoosed.

I think it may be another wall to keep these English out Dougie.
Built by another tight fisted Scotsman.
He appears to have skimped on the cement !!
Good shot.

good stuff Dougie. Difficult to get the Northumbrian dry stone walls repaired Now. There are one or two people in our locality doing it but not mush fun during the winter months.

The piled-up rocks make a great lead-in! How long did it take you to arrange them all? The dead heather(?) provides a ver rich complimentary colour.

This is a shot I would have walked by without a second look and you've made it special Dougie. Superb - and couldn't be anywhere except Scotland! Smile
Ann that's very kind indeed, I don't get lots of these so they are VERY special when they arrive, Many Thanks.

Loved your comment too, and must admit I've passed here a few times over the years, but the light was just right this time. GrinGrinGrinGrin

Beautiful colours all over the image, nice composition, the eyes just "walk" along the wall.
