Scalpsie Cairn (Cairn(s)) by GLADMAN I found it very difficult to discern any real structure to the site, although the large slabs and pits were rather suggestive; however the Coastal Archaeology Record Enhancement Survey of 2009-10 concluded that "this may well have been a cairn with an architectural fa├žade at the SW and a passage to a chamber towards the E that is no longer visible. The two pits in the N with associated slabs are probably later cist insertions into the cairn. The feature is much degraded and large quantities of the original material are missing".
