The second of a group of three cairns
The second of a group of three cairns
Cairn II of the group is about 60 cm high, and its fairly flat grassy top, surrounded by dark clumps of heather, is visible here in the foreground. See LinkExternal link for another view of the same cairn, showing one of the stones that project through its grassy surface.
Cairns on Carman Muir
On Carman Muir, near the foot of Carman Hill, there is a cluster of three grass-covered ancient cairns: see LinkExternal link at WoSAS for details, and LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view centred on them (the cairns are indicated there by green marker pins labelled "Cairn 1/2/3"). A similar cairn stands alone to the west: see LinkExternal link at WoSAS for details, and LinkExternal link for the same satellite map, but centred on that cairn (green marker pin labelled "Cairn 4").
