13/07/2014 - Achaidh chambered cairn (also known as Cairn Of The Red Dog) is similar to Kyleoag chambered cairn and a visit to both makes for a nice walk. Achaidh is easily accessed via the track from the west and also waymarked tracks from Spinningdale. The cairn is a good one. Pretty big with visible chamber and a great lintel over the passage into it. Good location with lovely views. Look out for Rivra cairn just to the SW of it as well. thelonious Posted by thelonious
