(NH 7676 9745) Stone Cist found AD. 1901 (NAT)
OS 6" map, Sutherland, 2nd ed., (1907)

The Revision ONB, containing the authority for this entry, was destroyed during the 1939-45 war.

It is possible that a beaker was found in this cist. Abercromby (1912) noted a Type B2 beaker, 5 1/2 ins tall, found in a bank 'near Dornoch'. Crichton Mitchell located it to Cambusmore and said it was in Dunrobin Museum in 1934 (Mitchell 1934); but Clarke, in 1970, claimed that it was in Inverness Museum, mislabelled 'Alness, Dalmore'. It belongs to his group N/NR.

The beaker is on display in Inverness Museum labelled Dornoch, Sutherland. It was found whilst making the Dornoch light Railway in 1902.
