Ancient cairn on Garn Gron's main summit
There are two cairns on the main (eastern) summit of Garn Gron. This, the more westerly one, is ancient, while the eastern one LinkExternal link is modern. This one has a built-in shelter and possibly once had a cist (Coflein[1]: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) ), suggesting it was originally built for funerary purposes. See LinkExternal link for a wider view.
