NH84NW 49 84 49
Two beakers, found in the same cist in Cawdor parish, were in Nairn Museum at the end of the 19th century, and possibly still there in the 1920s. In 1888 they were described as 'a very fine Urn of the tall thin-lipped variety with bulging sides, 7.5 inches in height, and the fragments of another'. A third beaker, referred to in 1893 as being 'a still finer specimen (than those in the Museum)' was at Cawdor Castle at the end of the 19th century, and possibly still there in the 1920s. The present location of these beakers is not known. Their descriptions do not provide enough information to identify them with the three described on NH84NW 39.
