Cairn Na Gath

Chambered Cairn


Long cairn 30m in length with no visible chambers. A modern cairn has been added and parts of it have been used for lambing pens. More impressive from a distance than up close!

You can approach it though as it the Southern Upland Way runs close by and access across the intervening fields has been arranged as part of Dumfries and Galloway's Archaeosights arrangements.

You might be able to get permission to park at Balmurrie Farm but I parked at the cattle grid at roughly NX203658.

Can easily be combined with a visit to Caves of Kilhern.
