Axis of Wester Brae Long Cairn
Axis of Wester Brae Long Cairn
The memoir Survey of Prehistoric Monuments of the Black Isle states:
Within the area of a field of small cairns and at a height of 550 ft above O.D. and little more than half a mile NNE of Woodend III Long Cairn is a second long cairn 85 ft. long by 40 ft. wide, oriented roughly E-W. This cairn too is in a fir plantation and presents as a treeless green turf-covered stony mound. It attains a height of 6 ft. near the W end and 5 ft. at the E end, while there is an appreciable depression about the centre suggesting an attempt at robbing. The ends, however, do appear to be intact.
