Mid Gleniron I and II

Chambered Tomb


These two sites lie together in the same field.

They were excavated in the mid 1960s and became something of a cause celebre (see Miscellaneous below).

From experience, you tend to have low expectations about the current condition of sites excavated that long ago so it was a delight to see the condition of Mid Gleniron I.

All three chambers are clearly visible and free of any rubble. The partial facade is still there to see and the outline of the cairn is well defined.

Mid Gleniron II has less to offer. The chamber is no longer visible but the cairn remains well defined.

A large round cairn lies across the track from the chambered cairns.
