I have a love/hate relationship with them.
As a kid I loved walking to Hamilton's Crag at Ben Lomond and putting a small rock on the top of the well-made cairn there. When the snow was really good we would carry our downhill skis up there and ski down.
In April 2018, I hated that the track marking the way from Lake Myrtle to Lake Meston was mostly 3 or 4 rock cairns which were useless in the foot of snow...having only walkd up there once before (no snow), it was tough to say the least.
