We arrived on a very dreich morning to visit the non chamber cairn, chamber cairns are everywhere in this area, situated in its own wood glade, mist and trees making for an eerie enhancing atmosphere.

At Milbuie Primary School we took the minor road heading westish and took the first farm road heading west parking at some stables.

Follow the track and the cairn will appear in a clearing slightly to the north. Sitting at over 12m wide and standing at 1m tall, quite an impressive sight / site. Cairn material is moss covered. There might not be a chamber according to Canmore, and they say there are no kerbs. Several boulders, however, manage to impersonate kerbs reasonably well.

A nice site, well situated.

Somewhat aghast to have missed this while we were visiting the nearby chambered cairn, it looks like a great site from your photos. I think we did pretty well to see so many chambered cairns that day, but there might have been room for this one! thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

It is a very beautiful place, the mist and drizzle certainly added to it tho. drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy
