Cairn on the northern slopes of Cnoc Dail-chairn, Sutherland
Looking towards the River Helmsdale and beyond to Ben Griam Mr and Ben Griam Beg.

From LinkExternal link :"This cairn is situated on a natural terrace on the N flank of Cnoc Dail-chairn within the area of an extensive field-system. It measures 13.7m from N to S by 13m transversely and 1m in height. The mound is surrounded by the remains of an orthostatic kerb with stones up to 0.75m high; on the E there is a straight stretch of kerb 7.5m in length and elsewhere there are what appear to be facets within the kerb, suggesting that the cairn may be an octagonal on plan. A hut has been built in the disturbed stonework on top of the cairn. The straight stretch of kerbing on the E suggests that the cairn may be chambered."
