The official name of the trip was: "The Neolithic Perthshire with a wee dram Fieldtrip" though we took some forays into medieval and post-medieval Perthshire as well.
|'Tween Killin and Aberfeldy'. Needless to say, I had "Loch Tay Boat Song" on my mind all day!|
Our first stop was Pitnacree round barrow. It's not much to look at - just a wee mound - nevertheless, it is a Neolithic, and built in 3 phases, including timber uprights, cremation burials, and finally, a standing stone, which is still on top of the mound. We clambered up to have a look at it.

|A lovely standing stone!|
|This is Daniel, one of the supervisors on the dig.|
|We're always encouraged to 'hug a stone'. This is Chris, one of my class-mates.|
