Cairn is a term used for a man-made pile of stones. It comes from the Scottish Gaelic: càrn (plural càirn). These cairns have several uses including: As a memorial, a boundary marker or a navigation landmark. In Scotland, it is traditional to carry a stone up from the bottom of a hill to place on a cairn at its top. In such a fashion, cairns would grow ever larger. An old Scottish Gaelic blessing is Cuiridh mi clach air do chàrn, "I'll put a stone on your cairn". In Highland folklore it is believed that the Highland Clans, before they fought in a battle, each man would place a stone in a pile. Those who survived the battle returned and removed a stone from the pile.
This piece is a contemporary design by Stuart Fellowes and represents a typical hillside memorial cairn. This piece is fully customisable with options for creating your own engraved dedication plate or for something extra special cold cast Brass, copper or Bronze dedication plates can be commissioned with either engraved or embossed lettering.
