Corkerhill Golf Course
Glasgow, City of Glasgow
Barrow Canmore
Also known as Law Hill Barrow

This barrow (an earthen burial mound) is largely hidden by a small wood within Corkerhill Golf Course on the southwestern edge of Pollok Country Park on the southside of Glasgow. It is of an uncertain date, but possibly Bronze Age.

The mound is around 20m (about 60 feet) in diameter and 2m (6 feet) high and pretty much featureless.

The Victorians dug into it in search of treasure, as they were wont to do. In 1863 an amber bead and a cremation urn containing burned bone were found at the top of the mound, and no notable structure within the body of the tumulus.
