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 you get to it. Just sitting beside the road!

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 - I am neither small nor nimble and I totally would have crawled apart from it has been raining a lot recently and, well, mud.

I love old things though, and this is seriously old and in relatively good shape despite this, so I did enjoy it. There is a ring of small standing stones around the cairn, Standing stones do give me the shivers, so I was happy to see them there.

If this is your kind of thing, I recommend a trip to Kilmartin, to the south of Oban. It has spectacular cairns, standing stones and a museum as well.
