Innisidgen Lower

Chambered Cairn


Following the main coast path round from Long Rock, we weren't entirely sure where the tomb was, but by simply going along the path you can't miss it.

Not as well preserved as Bant's Carn, but this is still a joy. The tombs on this island are staggering really, the size and thickness of the granite roofing slabs alone make me feel in awe of the people who built them.

Whereas the other "showpiece" tombs here are circular, this one is built to an oval plan and on a slope.

But without further ado, off to Innisidgen.
