Scotsburn Wood West

Chambered Cairn


Set in a forestry clearing, this is a good example of the features of a typical Orkney-Cromarty passage and chamber - not much of the cairn survives.

The less well preserved Scotsburn Wood East also sits in the forest at NH726768 but was not visited due to an outbreak of CBA.

Access. Several possibilities but we parked at NH733763, followed the Right of Way west for about 1 km then N up the rather wet forest track. Easy walking but two stiles to cross.
