  1. I love long barrows! Belas Knapp is a real gem. I visited an amazing one in Dumfriesshire a couple of years ago: Cairnholy, It has an incredible facade of tall upright stones. The barrows on the Orkney islands are so interesting too, we’re heading there again this summer and I can’t wait to visit them again!
