Tyrebagger Stone Circle

Dyce, United Kingdom

Unknown to most Aberdonians, the relatively intact and well preserved Tyrebagger Stone Circle stands on a hillside within a mile or two of busy Aberdeen International Airport. Access to the site will require at least a 10-15 minute walk as it is impossible to reach it directly by car. The closest point where it may be possible to park is outside the Aberdeen Airpark facility in a disused quarry to the east. From there, good farm tracks lead to the stones. The final hundred metres require you to climb the permanently chained gate illustrated below and walk across a field of springy rough pasture.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
