I love visiting old burial mounds and was glad to tick another off my long list. Built differently from the ones I've seen in England, this cairn did resemble a big pile of stones but impressive non the less with it's front entrance and stone...More

Well worth stopping off for, especially when they get the signposts for the local walks back up again - though the forest trail walks just off the road going down to Drumnadrochit are an excellent follow-up to a visit here.

As the reviews say - you need to be interested in archaeology to go out of your way to see this site as there are others in the area better eg Clava Cairns. But in association with Urquhart castle and The Falls of Tomich (Plodda)...More

This site was a short drive from Drumnadrochit and easy to find. There was a parking area with a very short walk to the cairn. It was fun to crawl into the cairn on hands and knees and great to be able to wander freely...More

Lovely, well preserved cairn which you can climb into by crawling on your hands and knees, but there is a real lack of information on it at the site. We drove there, looked around and drove away again, it really needs some information boards or...More

The Cairn is easily accessible, and the information signs are very helpful. Walks futher down the lane open up the world for all to see.

Well worth a short visit to this remarkably well preserved 'passage grave' that is 4,000 years old. Situated about 8 miles west of Drumnadrochit, so if your in the area visiting Urquhart Castle or Loch Ness would be well worth a quick visit. There is...More

A pile of old stones on an edge of a field in the middle of nowhere, not worth going to in my opinion unless you like old stones piled on top of one another.

This was a very interesting stop, there was a good notice board giving the basic info on the place, and easy parking. Could be a lttle muddy if wet. A wee bit eerie as we went at dusk.

It is a slight deviation off the main road but only a 100 yard walk from the car park to see this cairn. It is amazingly well preserved and being able to crawl through the low arch to enter the chamber is worth the difficulty...More
