Chambered Cairn


Ignored by the tourists who head straight for the - admittedly excellent - castle, this ruined site is dominated by the great mass of The Quinag rising beyond across Loch Assynt.

Well worth a look if you're passing since several uprights still remain..... and if the chamber isn't aligned upon Spidean Coinich I obviously don't know my alignments.

And hey, the views are great, too.
