Blue Cairn (Tarland)



Follow the directions for Corrachree, the remains of this cairn are a small distance to the east. Originally this was a tall cairn but most of the stones have gone leaving a circular bank 23 meters wide. 4 kerbs remain in place looking down onto the village of Tarland.

Further to east there is a more modern cairn dedicated to a woman who died before her time. Her husband must have loved her very much to erect this in an awkward place. Maybe the old ways of remembering those departed hasn't gone altogether.
