Garadh Ban Wood

Balmaha, Stirling
Chambered Cairn
Also known as Garadhban Forest

Thousands of people hike past this burial cairn every year on the West Highland Way. On the stretch from Drymen to Balmaha, a kilometre before the climb over conic hill, and just a few metres from the trail and with a beautiful view over Loch Lomond. But it's so nondescript it is hard to believe anyone would notice it if they weren't actively looking for it.

All there is to see now is the vaguest pile of rubble, a couple of small upright stones and two large capstones, one flat on the ground and one slightly propped on one of the uprights.
