Cairn, Beinn nan Surrag, Isle of Lewis
Cairn, Beinn nan Surrag, Isle of Lewis
OS maps with a scale of 1:25,000 or larger show there to be three cairns on or near the top of Beinn nan Surrag. This one lies approximately 80m to the north of the highest point of the hill and is the only one of the three which is shown on the 1:50,000 map.


The OS Name Book of 1848-1852 notes that a Surrag is a part of a corn drying kiln and it is presumed that some part of the hill must resemble one.
