Nether Cairn
Nether Cairn
This large cairn, some ten feet high, adjacent to the old drove road to Garvald is believed to be a prehistoric burial cairn around 4,000 years old.Because of its exceptional size it, and Upper Cairn another half a mile to the north -east, may well have been a focus for religious ceremonies
