Some of them are quite old, dating back to 19th Century sappers who worked on the Ordnance Survey, and prospectors who searched for Cairngorm stones, the smokey quartz crystals found in these hills which were very trendy during Victoria's reign. Of course the structures get patched up by passing hillwalkers keen to get shelter from the wind. Nice report, glad to hear my old stamping ground is doing well.
