Hough Cairn



Hough Cairn is a cairn on the Isle of Tiree. It lies within 10 yards E of the edge of Hough Stone Circle S. It is a small robbed-out cairn measuring around 7 yards across by up to 0.5 yards high. There are two large stones exposed through the turf which covers the cairn. One stone is in the W kerb, the other in the E of the interior of the cairn. The grassy interior of the cairn has a lumpy profile probably concealing underlying stones. The incomplete perimeter has a kerb measuring 1.0 feet high by 2 feet wide running from NE to SE and a kerb measuring 1.5 feet high by 2 feet wide running from W to N.

Hough Cairn is described in Canmore ID 21433 (go to Links).
