Resting in Peace on Muck

While we’re on the subject of unusual graves, let’s jump from one Small Isle to another. This image is of the MacEwen graves on Muck. This mini circle of 16 stones lies on the northwest tip of the island, and memorial plaques are set into three of them. Does anyone know if this was an old cairn that was reused for burials, or was it purpose-built for that?

  1. I love this ring! It's so companionable. The dead are having a beer together!
