Large cairn on Knock Hill
Large cairn on Knock Hill, taken 4 years ago
This is the westerly of the three large cairns identified on Knock Hill. It is thought to be a burial mound dating from the Bronze Age but has been much disturbed and no remains found. Many of the stones were robbed to build a rectangular shelter next to it (now itself ruined). The cairn centre also shows signs of having been excavated in the past and partly backfilled.
