Chambered Cairn


RCAHMS NMRS No. HY22NE 22 at HY27102777 is probably a stalled cairn of the Orkney-Cromarty type, 48' diameter x4' high in 1946 and 14.3m NNE/SSW by 10.6m and 1m in height in 1981. 2.8m ESE/WNW pointing central chamber probably shown by two slabs, one 0.55m long barely visible at the SE and the other at the NW 0.9m long projecting 0.35m. Third, non-earhfast slab on SW side. Reported in 1967 as perhaps recently repositioned. Several large slabs that used to be lying against the fence I did not see on my visit. The first report mentioned three upright slabs. wideford Posted by wideford
