I loved being in here, it felt a bit intrusive initially but if one visits this place with respect for the people who lived and ied here this a wonderous place.

This is one of my favourite cairns, into which with care you can climb and sit in the chamber. There is also a cist outside. Somehow this one makes it easy to imagine how their cairns were, important burial places for chiefs etc in the...More

I suggest you go to the museum before walking to the Cairn. I suggest you walk as you will then see other cairns on the way and visit the Glen. It is a fascinating sight and really makes you question how our predecessors managed to...More
