Chambered Cairn


An attractive Orkney-Cromarty cairn sitting in an elevated position in a forest clearing with tremendous views over towards the Sgurr Mor mountains.

Most of the cairn material has gone but the chamber stones survive - the tallest being 1.75m high.

Access. There is a waymarked path into the forest through Beallachnagore Farm. If you come this way, turn left when you enter the forest then, a small distance up hill, look for the track to the stones on the right.

Unsure about parking, we came in from the E having parked at NH497562. I don't think we'd have found it without the GPS from this direction. Eventually, we joined up with the route above.
