Salt Knowe

Round Barrow(s)


Visited 4.6.12

This Barrow is huge – approximately 30 metres across x 3 metres high.

An information board stated that it has never been excavated and it is thought that there may be a passage grave inside. The barrow is comparable in size to Maeshowe.
I see Wideford states it has been surveyed so the info board is out of date.

You get a good view of the Ring of Brodgar from the top of the Barrow.

I couldn’t see ant trace of the cist – perhaps it has grown over?
