Cairn na Burgh More
Cairn na Burgh More
Both the Cairn na Burgh islands have been heavily militarised during the course of history. The castle remains on Cairn na Burgh More date from the 15th to 17th century, although the island may have been fortified as early as Viking times. The defences of the island include this massive wall which closes a gap in the cliff.
