OS 6" map, Sutherland, 2nd ed., (1907)

Carn Liath, a round cairn about 65ft in diameter and 9ft high, but as the passage and chamber are filled with rubbish nothing can be seen of the structure except the top of a large stone near the centre. When visited by the RCAHMS (1911), certain large stones set upright suggested a chambered character.
