Snizort Parish Church



The Snizort cairn is completely overshadowed by its massive and more famous neighbour, Carn Liath. I found this to be a cracking wee site situated near to the River Hautlin and the beginnings of Loch Eyre. Only a short walk north on, today, flat dry land.

It is 10m tall and almost 0,5m tall having had a bit of a houk in the middle. One thing the houking reveals is the cairn material and somehow it doesn't seem to alter the turf/fen covered cairns shape. To the north and north east possible kerbs poke their heads through.

Nice to see Carn Liath has a wee friend, even nicer, another wee friend isn't far away.
