Chambered Cairn

Balnaguie (Chambered Cairn) by thesweetcheat General view of the structure from the north. The two widely spaced stones set apart on the left are remains of the original facade. The slab at the left-hand end of structure is the north side of the eastern chamber. The next stone (in front of the tree) is the northern portal stone, marking the division between the two chambers - its southern pair is underneath the oak tree. The remaining stones to the right are the sides of the western chamber. The viewpoint is within the perimeter of the original cairn, which would have been absolutely massive.
