Sand River Archaeological Trail, Big Sand

The seemingly bleak moorlands north of the Sand River, like many in the Highlands, harbour the remains of centuries of human activities. Here, though, a trail and marker posts indicate a route that helps to make sense of some of the crumbling stones in this lonely place.


The route crosses an open hillside of rough grasses and heather. Boggy in places but stone waymarkers help keep you right.
