As part of a Rabbies Tour we were on our way to Islay when we stopped at these cairns/standing stones. A brief stop, however it was very interesting learning about these cairns.

In early May we went to see the ancient monuments near Kilmartin. A wooden path takes you across a ditch to the standing stones, then you walk for a fair distance through the meadow and across a country lane to a stone circle, which supposedly may have been a temple, then come back across to the cairn, which is quite impressive. There you can see a burial chamber with stone slabs forming an entrance and roof. Altogether it is an interesting day out for those interested in monuments from the stone age in which Scotland abounds. We visited Arduaine Gardens nearby first, then the stone age complex stopping at Dunchraigaig Cairn in-between.

Walk from site to site and end up at the temple wood. Nice gentle walk. Summer is midge season. You do walk across fields of livestock.

Again, part of the walk through the glen includes this barial site. The kids went right in and it gave you an appreciation of the work that went into making these. Well worth the walk around.

Although not able to see inside this cairn due to renovation work, to view a structure created over 4,000 years ago in a truly lovely setting is amazing. Well worth stopping in Kilmartin by the visitor centre and walk about half a mile through a field with some friendly highland cattle, over a bridge and a short path to this structure.
