Crarae Garden

Chambered Cairn

Crarae Garden (Chambered Cairn) by greywether General view.

The entrance faces just N of E.

S of the entrance, one stone of the facade remains - 2.6m high and max 1.7m wide.

It is now difficult to distinguish the extent of the cairn amongst the landscape garden features. When excavated in the mid 50s, trenches were dug which suggested it was 34m long and at least 22m wide at the entrance.

Some evidence of activity in the forecourt. A pit containing 2,500 marine shells was found. A further 2,500 were found in the chamber.
