“He may make me feel like a fool, and like a woman who can do nothing, but what I can do I will. In my jewellery box is a dark locket of black tarnished silver and inside it locked in the darkness, I have his name: Richard Neville and that of George, Duke of Clarence, written in my blood on a piece of paper from the corner of my father's last letter. These are my enemies, I have cursed them. I will see them dead at my feet.” ― Philippa Gregory, The White Queen

The Clava Cairns are one of Scotland’s most evocative sacred prehistoric sites. We know little about who the cairn builders were for they left no written record, and the remains of those buried within no longer survive because of overzealous archaeological digging in the early 20th century - but we do know they are around 4,000 years old.
Beinn Alligin, Scotland Beinn Eighe is unusual amongst the Torridon mountains in that its summit is not composed of Precambrian Torridonian Sandstone, but Cambrian basal quartzite, a very hard but brittle rock. This gives it its familiar light coloured summits, a notable contrast to the other peaks in the area. Underlying the quartzite is a bed of Torridonian Sandstone.
