Glebe Cairn, Kilmartin
A slightly smaller reconstruction of the excavated cairn.
It was excavated in 1864 and appears to have had at least two stages of construction.
The first stage appears to have had two concentric rings of boulders and a slab built cist.
The second stage saw the construction of a boulder built cist and the enlarged cairn.
