Oban Nam Fiadh

Chambered Cairn


From the shore of Loch Carabhat near Dun Scor we headed the short journey north to the chamber cairn at Oban Nam Faidh in wind and driving rain. Fortunately the ground here is all heather so no marshy stuff to walk on.

Vegetation in the form of ferns might cover this site but there was more than enough left for this site to remain impressive. It is almost 20m wide / 2m tall and like most of its neighbours has been robbed to make various huts and wind breaks. Six stones still stand of the chamber but the capstones have fallen to the side. Some stones remain of what might be a inner and outer kerb.

The big problem here was taking photographs, it was lashing down, hopefully what I've put up gives some idea of the site.
