Kensaleyre Church



The walk from the Snizort Cairn to the 'Church' cairn is a fairly short distance to the north east, however there are a couple widish jumps over burns/ditches to negotiate before reaching the site.

With the beautiful scenery of Loch Eyre to the north and the surrounding hills, this site was well chosen as a final resting place. It still sits at over 10m wide and is 1m tall. Straggly heather and turf cover the cairn, an upright stone sits near the centre. There is also a turf covered kerb. Sadly there has been some houking in the north west, but like the Snizort cairn the overall shape hasn't been to badly affected.

The route back to car, A and B also needed a few long jumps but I returned dry. Time to hello to Loch Eyre.
