Kilmartin's linear cemetery
Kilmartin's linear cemetery
This is the only chambered cairn of the five in Kilmartin's linear cemetery. Excavations in 1864 revealed evidence for use over perhaps a thousand years. A round-based bowl dates to about 2,500 BC while a Beaker, arrowheads and cists show people used the site differently hundreds of years later.

There were two secondary cists: this one, still visible, is 8m from the chamber, and consists of four massive slabs and capstone.
