Black Wood Of Leys East

Kerbed Cairn


This was the second of the eastern cairns we visited and once again another wonderful kerbed site. Kerbs surround the cairn several of which still stand and are in view. Others are covered in moss and turf. The probable capstones mentioned by Canmore are both still there covered in vegetation. What might be a cist, Canmore says no but they might well be wrong, still remains in the centre of the site.

At over 10 metres in width and about 1 metre high this is still an impressive site.
