Chambered Cairn


An alternative approach, particularly if level ground is important, is to park at NN740230 and walk the mile or so along the disused railway line.

This is a fairly typical Clyde cairn with its one axial and two lateral chambers. However, an unusual feature is the narrow width of the forecourt. It is assumed that forecourts were used for some form of ritual activity and they are generally semi-circular but here it is more V-shaped.
