Saw these cairns marked on the OS map and thought I would take a look.

Unfortunately the weather had other ideas!
Despite it being 2.00pm the rain was coming down and we had full headlights on!
It was very misty/rainy and to be honest I couldn’t see a thing from the road.

Canmore states:
‘Vestrafiold is a compact group of large burial mounds placed in a prominent location overlooking Skara Brae. The mounds havehad large blocks of stone dumped on them and have been impacted by war buildings’.
