NS7224 : Great War Cairn

taken 10 years ago, 3 km from Kames, East Ayrshire, Great Britain

Great War Cairn
Great War Cairn
On the summit are two large cairns, one is largely intact, but the other was heavily robbed of stone to build a large monument to the people of Muirkirk who fought in the 1914-1918 war.

The cairn stands a little more than 3 metres tall.
