Full Description

This fragmentary cairn with a cist is north east of the head of the Cam Loch on the Ledmore estate and was recorded by members of Historic Assynt in 2015. It has been very seriously robbed and all that survives is a level spread of quartzite cobbles, 13m E-W and 15m N-S on the south end of a low glacial mound overlooking Ledbeg farm and Ledmore junction. In the approximate centre a probable cist 1.00m - 0.70m edged by six large stones. <1>
