Chambered Cairn


Visited 26.7.13

It had started to drizzle (in the Highlands this counts as being dry!) and we stopped the car on the rough, narrow road near Balvraid Farm. The others sat in the car while in the car while I hopped over the barbed wire fence to get a close up of the Cairn.

The remains are impressive and well worth a look when visiting the nearby more famous Brochs. There is a large capstone held up by 3 stones while a further two stones have fallen.
The whole Cairn is sat on a mound about 10m in diameter.

As with the other sites in the area good views abound.
