- CHAMBERED CAIRN (Neolithic - 4000 BC to 2401 BC)
NG33NW 1 3237 3791.
(NG 3237 3791) Chambered Cairn (NR)
OS 6map, (1969)
A much-robbed Hebridean-type chambered cairn 6' in maximum height and turf-covered, the edge quite clear, with a diameter of 80'. The ground is rather uneven and it is likely that the chamber has been built on a slight rise and that there is less cairn material round it than there appears to be.
The pear-shaped chamber, 17' long by 10'3" wide of massive split blocks is entered from the ESE. A single stone, 3'4" SE of the chamber and set parallel to its axis, can just be seen. It probably represents part of the S side of either an ante-chamber or passage. It is 24' from the cairn edge on the ESE side.
