Heights of Brae

Chambered Cairn


Another Orkney-Cromarty cairn in an elevated position - 240m. The most visible remains are four stones from a polygonal chamber standing 1 to 1.5m high. Look around and you can see some low surviving stones from a second, rectangular, chamber which adds to the interest.

Nice site with great views and reasonably accessible.

You are supposed to be able to see Balnacrae from here (4 km NNE) but we forgot to look!

Access. Easy. From the Dingwall/Strathpeffer road (A834) take the turning for the memorial to writer Neil Gunn and park at the memorial car park. Follow the farm track immediately E of the car park to the site. Several gates but all easily opened.
