Balmartin, Western Isles
Chambered Cairn; Aisled House Canmore
Also known as Carry Tighary; Cleitreabhal; Tigh Cloiche

On the southern slope of Cleitreabhal a Deas on North Uist stands the remains of a chambered tomb. An entrance from the east led into a long narrow passage or chamber.

Unusually, a later group of buildings (from the Iron Age) have been built into the sides of the cairn.
