Achnagoul I

Chambered Cairn


I had expected this to be a good one but not as good as it turned out to be.

This Clyde cairn with one axial and one lateral chamber is truly megalithic in its construction with massive sidestones and capstone in the axial chamber. It's one of the few chambered cairns in mainland Scotland where you can actually get inside.

Great location too with views down Loch Fyne.

There is plenty of parking space on the Achnagoul farm road just after you have turned off the main road.

The person I spoke to about access was not the farmer but said that the farmer had no problem with visitors. Useful to know if you turn up and there's no one about.
