A picture to raise the blood pressure of those who love to hate balancing stones etc!! Luckily they're not in the UK, but in the Dolomites

Robert D would normally have answered by now but I imagine he's packing some steel toe-cappers and booking a flight.

Perfect for kicking over.

Cairns are for navigation, not blighting the natural landscape.

I like cairns which provide some degree of shelter, like the one atop Mam Sodhail, and the one on top of Sgurr na Lapaich, north of Loch Mullardoch.

I quite like these structures on the beach, interesting to look at and gone at the next high tide. The ephemeral nature adds to their appeal.

We saw lots of little cairns in one of the other big caves adjacent to the King's Cave on Arran last March. It gave the place a kind of Buddhist vibe. I'm sure it would have calmed Robert the Bruce down a bit while he seethed about the English.

Here's some from home.  They'll get repurposed or recycled at the next high tide.  Stones on end !!
