Take the turning north out of the village, sign posted Axton Lane. You will shortly come to a public footpath sign – park here. The barrows are easily seen from the gate or a 1 minute walk will get you up close. The barrows are right next to each other but are now only low mounds. Worth a quick look when in the area. Good views.

Directly east of Gop cairn, these two barrows have good views of mountains and the sea. One is about a metre high and the other slightly bigger at nearly two metres, about twenty metres apart. Pretty close to the road and next to a footpath. postman Posted by postman
