We were spending the night in a B+B in Newton Stewart - so here I am.
The cairn is an impressive size and very easy to see and access, It amazes me how these prehistoric sites have managed to survive so close to urban expansion. Hopefully future generations will have the same regard for them that we do?
The cairn is approximately 2m high x 20m across.
Well worth looking out for when visitin Newton Stewart.
This platformed cairn is a good size and worth a look if your passing.
The side that faces the road looks a bit robbed-out but it's overall shape and condition is good.
It stands beside the B7079 on the outskirts of Newton Stewart.
