Chambered Tomb


You can still see the trenches here of the 1961 excavation of the forecourt area which produced a date of approx 2250 bce for the blocking and end of use of the tomb.

The three-compartment chamber is still open but rather overgrown. The main feature is the pair of portal stones - one 2.4m high.

Worth a visit.

Access In a forest walk near Lamlash and at the other end of the cycle path to Carn Ban.
