Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


Visited 14.10.18
The Machermore cairn should be called Culroy Cairn as it is on Culroy farmland. A Canmore search for Culroy will find these cairns.
The cairn is almost perfectly preserved except for some exposed stones on the E flank. It's location in a flat field elevates this cairn into my top 10.
I found the cairn to the E, however it is covered by whins and in poor condition.
Culroy White Cairn lies 50 yards of the Y junction at Culroy farm around 1/2 mile up the road.
I have plans to revisit to sort out the remaining cairns. Canmore's 1911 visit seems to have been over enthusiastic in it's cairn nominations.
