Chambered Cairn


Failed to spot these two chambered cairns.
The ground here is very steep, rough and has lots of natural boulders scattered about.

Canmore states:

Knockan 1
‘An overgrown mound of debris 17.5m x 15m x 1.5m high. Just west of the centre is a triangular shaped slab 1 m high x 3mm thick with another 1.5m to the south protruding through the turf. Both slabs are undoubtedly part of a chamber of uncertain plan’.

Knockan 2
‘The cairn survives as a turf covered mound of debris. It is now roughly oval and measures 15m x 10m x 1.5m high. From the summit of the mound the tops of 5 stones of the chamber protrude to a height of 0.5m’.
