Cadha Riach

Chambered Cairn


We found this site to be almost 'cute' amongst beautiful scenery. The Quiraing, which I've climbed a few times before will not attempted today as there is a ferry to catch, dominates with the island of Staffin and the Old Man of Storr holding their own.

The what is it Carn Ban can be seen to north and still looks like a cairn after all of these years.

From the village follow Gladman's directions, we parked near the tiny astro turf football pitch. Once on the flat look for a green mound, this contains the chamber which still has five stones in place. Some kerbs remain on the edge of the site.

Not much left, but worth it for the views, we loved it.
