Airidhan An T-sruthain Ghairbh

Chambered Cairn


Airidhan An T-sruthain Ghairbh means 'properties of the coarse stream'.

We headed for the summit of Guala na h-Imrich wading through bogs, peat cuttings and heather. Once at the top it started to rain. From the top the cairn looks a lonely place, with a the rain a desolate place as well. Still its's always worth it when you get there so on we plodded.

There appears to a ring of stones on edge or fallen surrounding site which 22m wide. Two massive stones are probably capstones. Sadly some stones have been drilled.

On a sunny this would be a beautiful place, on a cloudy rainy early evening it is still a beautiful place with an atmosphere of complete calm and silence.
