NB2134 : Breascleit Cairn

taken 12 years ago, near to Breascleit, Na h-Eileanan an Iar, Great Britain

Breascleit Cairn
Breascleit Cairn
This is the remaining half of a prehistoric burial cairn, discovered during road works and excavated in 1999 - then half destroyed by the road widening. The village of Breascleit (Breasclete) is in the background with the old millhouse to the left and the primary school to the right. I lived in the nearest house behind where I am standing, 1974-1983, and my children both attended the school. I used to graze my goats on the grass verge beneath which the cairn lay undiscovered.
