This is the last of 4 in a chain down about 2 Km from Kilmartin - and the most interesting as the interior was the biggest. Worth the pleasant walk down, on a good day, rather than giving up earlier.

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.

Kids got a kick out of climbing in & out of the cairn - very tangible history lesson (& also great for pretending to be a zombie of course!!)

Once you find it, it's fantastic. Reminded us of Newgrange in Ireland.... except you don't need a tour... they just allow you to walk and enter on your own... UNBELIEVABLE!!!

The whole Kilmartin area was amazing and this Cairn was one of the largest. Easy to climb around the rocks and look inside. I'd heard that others could get into it but I'm not that flexible so I just peeked in. It was very impressive...More

As with the other cairns and standing stones in the Kilmartin area these are easily accessible and capable of seeing in close up
