Stockie Muir

Dumbarton, Stirling
Chambered Cairn
Also known as Aucheneck

Almost lost amongst the heather of Stockie Muir, this Clyde-cairn is quite splendid despite being "severely disturbed". As CANMORE notes, it is unlikely that the cairn has been much robbed for stone since it is fairly remote and there are no constructions in the vicinity that would have made use of the stone from the cairn.

It is about 20 metres (60 feet) long and up to 8 metres (25 feet) wide and still reaches a heigh of about 1.5 metres (5 feet).

At the east end are two portal stones. CANMORE states that they still stand, but one is now fallen.
