The axis of Woodhead III Long Cairn
The axis of Woodhead III Long Cairn
An authority on this cairn, Anthony Woodham, wrote in his memoir Survey of Prehistoric Monuments Black Isle
:
At a height of 600ft. above O.D., in a shallow depression in the plateau above Woodhead farm, is a long cairn oriented E-W . The area has been planted and the cairn stands out as a treeless heather-covered stony mound, 130 ft. long and 42 ft. wide. The sides of the cairn have become somewhat scattered and the original width is impossible to estimate without excavation, but the width quoted is the average of a number of measurements, and is the same at both ends.
