Kerbed Cairn


No megalithic meditation here due to the proximity of the road. Perhaps best visited on a Sunday (ouch!).

Interesting double kerbed cairn which, from Canmore, appears to be how it was originally constructed. There is a central cist. Over 100 postholes were found under the cairn laid out in a trapezoidal shape. Interesting, especially as the axis of the cairn is aligned with and visible from the Callanish avenue.

Just a little north of the Curtis' home and exhibition area. There's a layby with interpretation board on the other side of the road.
