Chambered Cairn


Amazing site - very robbed-out but several central chambers still in situ, and it measures a good 130 feet by 30 feet or so. Unfortunately there's a telegraph pole planted in the middle and the remains of a fence running through it.... but a very fine situation and well worth a visit. Park beside the two cottages at Kindrochet, and ask at the second cottage - the man who lives there is very friendly (as are his dogs!) and will explain how to approach it if the bull is in a nearby field. Approaching from Dundurn farm is more difficult.

The photographs really don't show the atmosphere of the place. Looking west along the length of the cairn gives a clear view of Dundurn hill fort.
