Well I was always intigued by the name Carney and it obviously comes from the word cairn so I was wondering what great cairn did the area take its name from.
Well the cairn that is marked on the map is in very poor condition. It may be that it has been used for building etc. It is on flat ground in fairly poor soil. It is made up of loose stones. However close by in the adjacent fields there is a lot of the same stone strewn around.
