Congratulations to the Scotland Historical Association for their care of such a treasure.They have included instructional posters that help in understanding the significance of the place. It was a long walk down to the cairn and back up to the parking lot, but it was...More
This is a "must see" spot. The size and details of the chambered cairn is nothing less than mind blowing. It is hard to imagine a place this not only thousands of years old, but, the people who lived there built this cairn on TOP...More
