Cairn on Auchmantle Fell
Originally there were two cairns on this hill. Muckle (big) cairn and Wee Cairn. Muckle Cairn used to contain a burial cist, but apparently the slabs were removed by a farmer for building material at the beginning of the last century and the cairn had been "almost entirely eradicated" when the inventory for the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments was compiled for Wigtownshire in 1911. This may actually be the remains of Wee Cairn, which was noted at the time to be "surmounted by a modern beacon."
