The cairn cemetery lying between Barbrook II and Barbrook I proves well worth a stop off. A widely varied group, mostly dug into in the mid-19th century, many have excellent kerbs. The star of the show is the rebuilt cairn closest to Barbrook I, a bit of a classic of drystone edging about four courses high. One of the stones in the surround shows an interesting weathered pattern that is probably natural, but just possibly could be the very eroded trace of cupmarks.

From here we drop slightly to Barbrook I.

Added simply as a site to gather thoughts and images relating to the large burial cairn-field -'cemetery', largely found between barbrook I and barbrook II SC's.

Visible either side of the track between the SC's, but 1-2 'outsider' rocky bumps exist also.

Kerbed cairns in part, some more simple in design, MOST are robbed out, some quite extensively so, forming neat little 'halos' upon the grounds' surface
