The Mound.

By foggytwo
This is the mound of grass with the (crypt) where I got the picture for my last upload. It seemed very strange to me to find this in a modern cemetery.
One wall of the ruined abbey runs along the side of the pathway which leads me to think that this is something that was once included in the abbey grounds.
When you go inside and look at the roof of the mound or underneath the grass you can see the underside of a stairwell that leads nowhere.

Last Saturday, I captured a dungeon during 16th century. The same look as this mound. Great pov.

Interesting to see I know that there is a similar construction -ancient escape tunnel in the grounds of St Andrews castle and you can go down it. For a real scary experience I always have a look at the Bottle Dungeon in the castle with the sea at the base.

Thanks for your comments on the enchanted forest. There are excellent access facilities .We were bussed from the Fishers hotel to Faskally. There is disabled carparking and the path is o.k. for wheel chairs and pushchairs. Maybe you can visit next year.
Take care. gillian
