The road which runs past Palacerigg and up past Wester Glentore, Torbrex and Bogside (nice house by the way) to come out at Longriggend is popular with 'courting' couples at all hours of the day and night.
You have been warned
Sorry, I wouldn't know anything about that sort of activity.
Anyway, this morning I went up to Woodend and spoke to the farmer who very kindly showed me his tomb.
I found it very hard to photograph. It was in amongst thick trees, covered in ivy and because of this was very badly lit (even on a morning like this?).Tomb At North Woodend Farm

As with all these tombs, the door looks south

Most of the stones had no markings remaining. One had a date of 1759
Some, like this one were more recent
Sorry about the pics. It was hard to get good composition.
If I moved back to far, the tomb just got lost in the trees.
The name Scott seemed to come up a few times on the tombstones.
The farmer said his family had lived there since about 1700 and the Scott's were indeed his ancestors.
Like I said in a previous post, he used to get people turning up from Canada to look at the tomb although not for a few years.
