Dun Na Carnaich

Chambered Tomb


A few metres from the standing stone is the ruinous chamber cairn, Dun Na Carnaich. Someone appears to have dug a hole straight through the middle of the site for quarrying and to add to the damage a fence has been plonked along its south edge. All along with the usual recycling of stones.

How anything survives is almost a miracle, it is almost 20m wide and at its tallest 2m. Two stones stand as an entrance and two remain upright belonging to the chamber, with several stones to making up the chambers sides.

Still one thing they didn't take away is the view and the channel to the Atlantic presumably the reason the structure was built.
