Chambered Tomb


There's not much to see here. An impressive cairn with a hollowed out centre and a few enigmatic stones in the SE.

It is, sadly, all that remains of a major passage grave excavated in 1871. An 8m passage from the SE led to a 6m chamber in the centre of the 26m diameter cairn. None of the passage/chamber is now visible apart from a few stones around the passage entrance.

It is, I believe, the most southerly example of the Hebridean style of chambered cairn.

On a single track road but with parking room at the site.
