NX5153 : Chambered Cairn at Cairnholy

3 km from Carsluith, Dumfries And Galloway, Great Britain

Chambered Cairn at Cairnholy
Chambered Cairn at Cairnholy
Cairnholy chambered cairns lie just off the A75 between Gatehouse of Fleet and Creetown. The Cairns are well signposted and the single track road that leads you to them is very scenic. Towards evening, if you are fortunate you may see owls gliding silently through the shadows of the woods. The cairns may well have been part of a larger group of burials and are oriented in a north south direction with a magnificent view of the sunset across Wigtown Bay to the West.
