Cross on the Mountain

white cross
At Shrinemont you can take a trail to the "Stations of the Cross" which winds up the ridge. There are periodic signs to tell the story of the crucification. I thought it would be an easy trail, a little lesson for Sunday schoolers, but it is actually quite steep and should not be attempted in your Sunday shoes. At the top is this huge wooden cross. And yes, there's a nice view.

There's a mystical website about the "Basye Vortex" and it has an interesting page on Orkney Springs.
