Recently enjoyed some solitary splendour on Karreg an Tan, the Rock of Fire, where a beacon warning against Viking raids up the Aulne once flared in response to a signal from Menez Hom. A real nugget of imaginative history. By contrast the 'neolithic dolmen' on the summit was put up in 1963 by the Quimper Scouts.
I am a writer living in Finistere. Published work includes many books and articles on the history and legends of Brittany, walking guides and fiction. Latest books: Spirit of Place in Finistere (landscape-writing) and a new collection of Finistere walks. I also teach Breton history, give talks about Brittany and guide tours all over the region.
