Caravat Barp

Chambered Cairn


Not the best preserved Hebridean Passage Grave on North Uist but one of the more accessible. For access and other sites in the area see Carinish.

Not much of the chamber and none of the passage is visible.

It is unusually housed in a long cairn which, viewed on the approach, is still rather impressive. Typically, it faces E where the cairn may have been horn-shaped.

Some of the peristaliths are still visible especially on its N side.
