Chambered Cairn


Visited 26.7.15

From the B842 take the minor road signposted Dalsmeran. Drive up the steep and narrow road, past Homeston Farm, until you reach a kink in the road at the top of the hill. The cain is (somewhere) next to the road on the left (when looking uphill).

We were staying in the lovely (and posh!) Oatfield House B+B and this site was only a short distance drive to the south. How could I not visit?

Unfortunately the site was totally overgrown with chest high ferns. I trampled about in the wet vegetation but there wasn't a hope of finding the remains of this chambered cairn.

This is definitely a site which requires a winter visit.

On the plus side there are fine views to be had as you drive back down the hill over the surrounding countryside.
