clachan-an-diridh-8

Some 9 years after our last visit, we finally returned to Clachan An Dirdih during a long weekend in Perth & Pitlochry. Again we followed the Clunie trail from Pitlochry, only this time the weather was stunning and the sun beat down warm on this April day in Scotland.

The circle is about 90 minutes into the 5 hour trail walk and was a good place to spend lunch. My wife painted a watercolour of the site which I’ll persuade her to let me scan and post up here. Otherwise we sat back, enjoyed the sun and watched our 7 year old boys enjoy racing round the clearing – time flies outside of the circle, but inside 4000 years pass in the blink of an eye.
