Balnabroich kerbed cairn 1

Kerbed Cairn


From the standing standing I walked to the top of the hill and followed the ridge south across deep heather and burnt heather. Eventually a track appears and this kerb or ring cairn is on the mound on the other side.

This must have been an impressive place. Today only the southern kerbs, graded in size, can be seen. The other kerbs are there but are hidden by the heather. A possible double ring exists but the vegetation makes it hard to photograph, but it is there. Still the cairn has tremendous all round views and is over 12 meters wide/0.4 eters high. The central cist mentioned by Canmore has sadly vanished.
