This chambered cairn will be taken by the sea in some years. It is directly situated at the current cliff edge and the weather keeps unveiling more and more of the interior. Perfect nesting ground for fulmars, though. Therefore always approach it from the sea if you want to respect the birds and don't want to be spat at. Luckily they always missed hitting me, so far.
