Chambered Cairn


Visited 13.6.12

North of a rough track off the B9078 in Esha Ness.
If you intend to visit this site DO NOT attempt to drive up the track unless you are in a 4x4.
Park at the junction and walk up – your car suspension will appreciate it!

Failed to find this one.

This is an area of features peat land, covered in heather.
In wet weather it would be a bog. Luckily the weather was dry and sunny.

I did at least see some great coastal views with rock formations out to sea.

Canmore states:
‘A square cairn with a cruciform chamber. Stands in rough pasture on a low ridge known as The Hamars of Houlland. It now stands about 3ft high’.
