Badnabay, Highland
Chambered Cairn Canmore

Badnabay is almost as far to the north-west as you can get on the British mainland, less than 20 miles south of Cape Wrath.

On some low-lying ground on the south side of the A894 there used to stand a chambered cairn some twelve metres in diameter. The cairn has been completely removed, but fifteen upright stones (some barely showing above the current ground level) of a polygonal chamber remain. These enclose an area about 2.5 by 3.5 metres across.
