Full Description

NH85NE 25 855 562.

A Beaker, now in Nairn Museum was, according to the label, 'found in a tomb at Easter Delnies (NH 855 562) on Cuthbertown, near Nairn'. This was presumably a cist burial.
Cuthbertown, which must have been a croft, lay a few hundred yards east of Easter Delnies.
The urn was presented to the museum by the widow of the third Clarke to own Achareidh House (NH 867 564) who died in 1959. His grandfather who bought the house in 1839 was apparently an antiquarian and was possibly associated with the discovery of the urn; he died in 1886. Short neck type - N2 (2).
I C Walker 1964; D L Clarke 1970.

No further information. Visited by OS (R L) 8 December 1970.

The Beaker is on display at Nairn Museum as part of a reconstruction of a cist grave. <2>
