Dunchraigaig Cairn
Kilmartin, Argyll OS Map
Chambered Cairn Canmore

Although greatly robbed, this is still an impressive cairn. It is about 30 metres in diameter and 2.5 metres in height. Two burial cists are visible and a third is known but hidden by replaced cairn material.

Cremated bones, flints, an axe and pottery were found in a 19th century excavation as well as a crouched burial beneath the paved floor of the cairn.
