The 2010 Challenge, day 10: Glen Tilt to Spittal of Glenshee (5)

Just before the descent to the Allt a' Ghlinne Bhig, I encountered this little stone-built shelter. It is just large enough for one person to sit, protected from the wind (but not from anything that may be dropping out of the sky directly above!) and, nearby, there are two posts with tie-up rings.

I wondered how many a weary packhorse man has been grateful for this little shelter - which speaks of another age, when the paths and tracks we now walk in solitude were once important routes into and out of the remote Highland glens.
