Giant's Graves

Chambered Cairn

Fieldnotes

First site in a three-day trip to Arran and a return visit to the Giant's Graves after 16 years. I'm sure the climb wasn't so steep the last time!

Two Clyde chambered cairns. The worderfully megalithic N one being the better preserved with its facade and forecourt (facing N) still clear enough. The main chamber is a joy and there is also a ruined S chamber.

The second cairn faces W.
