There is a visitor centre (Ferrycroft Countryside Centre) in Lairg with parking, etc and a trail to the cairn.

26m x 22m oval cairn covering a passage and chamber (neither accessible). The chamber probably reached a height of about 4m.

Excellent photo of the exposed chamber during excavation. Only the roofing slabs and passage lintels can be seen now.
