I might have told this story before on here but myself and the missus were out in the Sidlaws doing some off path compass and navigation practice (f**k off it's fun)
The point is to follow a compass bearing across open ground, not to follow paths etc to practice for doing it on snow fields on winter hills.
We had to cross all this bog and then go through dense woods and then we stumbled across a clearing about 20m long and 10 m wide. There were about a dozen rocks placed in a horseshoe around a burnt out fire.
Because I had the compass I took a bearing on the open end of the horseshoe and it pointed exactly due west which I thought was interesting at time. Like it had been placed there deliberately
Then my missus says, what are all these bones? In the fire there were loads of bones including what was unmistakably a pelvis bone and a femur. Compasses have rulers on them so was able to measure the femur at about 35cm
At this point we are thinking it must be like a scout camp or something and they have brought up a few pigs or a cows to BBQ but there was no place nearby to pitch tents and it was a few miles from the nearest road.
You could get to within half an hour on farm tracks with a land rover probably but it's a long way to drag a whole beast.
Any there were dozens of bones but at least 3 pelvises
Anyway we thought we better phone police to report just in case something weird was going on as by now the missus had convinced herself it was human bones.
So we reported when we got home and local bobby from Birkhill arranged to meet me in a couple of days to go back up and take a look.
I was waiting outside police station on the day to go up when I got a call from another officer saying something had come up and that someone would call me to rearrange.
I never got a call back so who knows what it was but too many things were just a bit off about it IMO.
