'Caves' of Kilhern
'Caves' of Kilhern
A short boggy detour from the Southern Uplands Way (signposted)brings you to a small area of raised ground on which are situated six neolithic chambered cairns. Described as the 'caves' of Kilhern on Ordnance Survey maps, this is the best preserved. They are estimated at between 2000-3000 years old.
