Auld Wife's Grave

Chambered Cairn


Visited 06.11.11
I parked at the Auchmantle farm on the minor road from Castle Kennedy to New Luce. The Glentirrow Stones are 500m W of this location. I headed N from Glentirrow Stones over bleak moorland towards a distant stone cairn. The summit of Cairnharrow lies 1.5k NW of the cairn over rough ground. Auld Wife's Grave is approximately 200m N of the Trig point. The OS position is NX 1355 6497 on the Landranger map. Retrace your path to return. This is a walk for a good dry day because of visibility and going underfoot. The total distance covered was around 8km (5miles).
