Hough Cairn



Hough Cairn is not a large cairn however its proximity to Hough Stone Circle S gives it a greater significance in the landscape. What is the relationship between the cairn and the stone circle? Which site was erected first?
Canmore ID 21432 assigns the Hough Stone Circle S to the Neolithic or Bronze age but Canmore ID 21433 leaves the age of Hough Cairn unassigned. Excavation of the Hough Cairn would provide the answer but there are no archaeological records. The mystery remains.
