Chambered Cairn; Standing Stone; Possible Stone Circle
The robbed remains of this chambered cairn, approximately 57 metres (190 feet) long and up to 12 metres (38 feet) wide, lie in a glorious location in Glen Almond. It has three visible cists in the body of the cairn and CANMORE reports that there used to be a fourth, now destroyed.
Just a few metres away is what appears to be a solitary standing stone, but nearby under the turf are two more likely fallen stones on what could be the arc of a circle. A few hundred metres northwest along the river are the ruinous remains of another stone circle.
