26/09/2015 - Two cairns marked on the OS map just next to the main road and to be honest, not the most exciting. Both small grassy lumps in an area of larger grassy lumps and bumps. Be good to know if they are definite cairns. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Approx 2 miles north of Castletown – right next to the A836 – Dunnet Bay side of the road.

This is a coastal area with many large sand dunes part covered in grass. Take your pick which ones the cairns are!

Canmore States:
‘Two sand and turf covered cairns. The one in the east has a loose flat slab, 09m x 0.6m, lying prostrate on its east arc’.
