Coming down from Kilmartin this is the 2nd of four cairns and is the first you can going inside to take a look. Not that there is really anything to see, but it is interesting to do so anyway! A pleasant walk in the countryside...More

Whilst not entirely authentic it's great to be able to descend the steps to the burial chamber. If you are in the area see the three Nether Largie Cairns plus Temple Wood.

Lots of places in Scotland are just too busy to get a good feel for. The visitors aren't solemn or respectful. This wasn't one of those places. It felt very alive and beautiful. I loved it. One of my favorite places in Kilmartin.

You enter the cairn through a stile, but the steps are shallow and there is a pole. Then you go through a gate. This site is really bumpy, and you have to skirt around sloping edges to get to see the cist on the other...More

Visit this one with the others to get a full picture of why the Cairns are built where they are. Amazing when you consider the age of them, must have taken some time to build!

This is the second most northerly tomb in the linear cemetery and is easily accessible. Greatly reconstructed it is nevertheless fascinating. You can descent into the interior and see carvings of axeheads on the cist slabs. A non strenuous walk from the visitor centre and...More
