Chambered Cairn


Greyweather's spot on with this one - a classic chambered cairn.

First thoughts upon looking at the map were...uh oh... forestry... but the track's clear all the way and the cairn stands proud and treeless (well, save the little fella in the picture) above and to the left of it.

The cairn is substantial indeed with a small, intact chamber. I sat inside relaxing out of the sun [strange but true], waiting for someone to arrive and spoil the moment. But no-one did...

The forestry track entrance is somewhat obscure being, as you would expect, un-signposted. Make sure you have the OS map and if you are heading north and pass a fine waterfall on your right, you've gone too far.

Cheers Greyweather. Nice one.
