The Haylie Chambered Neolithic Tomb


Although Douglas Park is attractive the whole year round one of the best times to visit is in the spring when all the spring flowers and blossoms are on display.  This is very well depicted in the photograph (above left) taken by Kate McGregor.  Apart from its natural beauty Douglas Park is also well known for it's Neolithic Tomb known as the Haylie Chambered Tomb.  The Tomb was discovered by James Wilson of Haylie in 1772.  It dates back to circa 3000 BC and markes the graves of people known as the 'Beakers' due to the distinctive style of their pottery which resembled a beaker with a pronounced inverted bell shape.
