East Bennan

Chambered Cairn


What a great site to end the trip with!

"Turf covered and overgrown with gorse" was the most recent description I had of this site. Not now though. It's all gone and you can see clearly all the features of a Clyde cairn.

The portal stones and many of the facade stones remain. There is one axial chamber with well-defined compartments and two lateral chambers. All this and views out to Ailsa Craig. Splendid!

Access You can drive down the farm road where there is room to park just one car at the end. Keep going past the caravan and into the field on your left. One locked gate.
