Dun Trossary

Chambered Cairn


This is a long cairn, its most prominent feature being a 3m stone leaning at a great angle. Other stones are visible in the turf suggesting the line of a chamber.

Interpretation is difficult especially as all but the S end of the cairn has been covered in sheep fanks. The tall stone may be part of a facade linked to the chamber.

In its favour, access is easy. Park at the church then through a gate. But there are a lot more interesting sites than this one to spend time at.
