A walk in the hills just north of the Dhoon Glen to try and locate an old Keeil site marked on the 1870 Ordnance Survey map but missing from more recent ones.  There was also a nearby stone circle marked on the old map but again missing from newer ones.  I was unable to reach the Keeil site on foot due to not wanting to risk damaging stone walls by climbing over, but I had the Spark drone with me and was able to take some aerial pictures.
