Mountain Art on Canisp - A Quartzite Spherical Cairn

This exquisitely sculptured cairn lies close to Canisp's summit viewed here on the left skyline with Quinag in the far distance to the right. The cairn has been constructed with Cambrian Quartzite and this view was captured with a wide angle lens and the photographer lying flat on the ground.
