Knowe of Ramsay

Chambered Cairn


Access HARD! See Knowe of Lairo, plus a further short, but extremely steep and fairly hard climb up the craggy escarpment above Lairo. If you climb up just to the right of a shrub-lined stream to the north of Lairo, you'll reach the 'terrace' coming out virtually straight onto the Knowe of Ramsay itself!

Not all that 'whelming' I'm afraid, the mound is still evident but pretty low. I was pleasantly surprised that I'd managed to capture it on camera at all!!! In decent weather, worth the scramble up for the views, especially to look down on the Knowes of Lairo - itself a 'must visit' site! In bad weather, forget it!!!!
