Auchmachar Cairn

Long Cairn


Leave the village of Maud using the B9106 heading north towards the A950. The B road ends here, directly opposite is signposted the road to Cryla farm. Stop at the forst corner and woodland walks are indicated. Proceed to the top of the hill, about 1/2 mile. On the right is Auchmachar Stone Circle, the recumbent is used as part of the fence, to the left is the cairn about 1/4 from the fence. The Bronze Age cairn is about 50 meters in length, 4 feet in height and approx 2-4 meters wide (depending on position) and with aerial photography resembles a fish. Burned stone can be seen scattered on the ground.
