One week before I took this photo I had been to the Summit of the Merrick with a friend. When I uploaded to 360cities.net I was marking where the panorama was on the map when I noticed something weird just over 100 meters to the south of the cairn at the summit. I got a little curious as to what it might be and I had to climb the mountain again to see just what it was. It looks like the tracks leading up to the stone are sheep tracks, my guess is the sheep use the rock to shelter from bad weather. If you look at the google satellite map of where this photo is then you might understand why I made the trip back up the mountain again.
