Ramberry Cairn

Work finished today on what was left of a presumed chambered cairn (HY42401383) on Quanter Ness, only a little further coastward than the Crossiecrown settlement. Indications are that it was dismantled early on (Quanterness chambered cairn is across the road and up the lower slopes of Wideford Hill) and may be a crossover between the purely domestic and the religious type of site. Though there is no dating evidence it does share an alignment with the Tomb of The Eagles. After the exploratory dig it has now been covered over.
