This is a very historic place to visit - Ancient Cairns are top of my mums list, so we had to visit this once we learned of it's existence! It's around a 20 minute drive West of Drumnadrochit. It is down a country lane, so...More

This ancient burial ground is full of history and mystery. The best way to find it is as part of a tour group.

Lovely area to drive through. Attraction was clearly signposted and near the main road. Once there, it did not take long to see. As someone else said, it is a pile of stones Still interesting to see and to wonder how they built it!

Always amazed at the history in little out of the way places. Stopped by here on my way from Tomich to Loch Ness, and it was easy to find and a fun 5 minute diversion off the main road. Parking is about 100 yards before...More

Visited whilst taking dog for a walk nearby and on another occasion to show visitors a little bit of local history. Fascinating cairn - makes you wonder how they lifted the really big stones into place!!??

Its a well secluded but worth finding attraction. its hard to believe that this is still standing after 4000 years! there is a small gate to get thru so not really wheel chair accessible.

This is worth a stop and a look at if you are in the area. Yip, it is just a pile of stones and if you want to go inside you need to be small and nibble or willing to crawl in the mud -...More

The Corrimony Cairn is a fascinating piece of preserved history in an area full of it. It's off the beaten path and fairly small, so it's easy to stop for 20-30 minutes, read the sign, look at the cairn, snap a few photos and be...More
