Free-of-charge remains from Iron Age, small but interesting, worth a visit if you are in the area, parking nearby

The cairn is outside Drumnadrochit and well sign posted. Access is via a single track road which carries on to a local hamlet so watch out for the speeding post office vehicles. There is a car park about a hundred metres from the cairn and...More

We visited here on a whim and weren’t disappointed. A really enchanting stone Cairn that dates back 4000 years. The boys enjoyed cloning through to the chamber and the whole area had a mysterious feel to it. A short trip but one we enjoyed.

I have a fascination with Cairns so its not hard to see why I gave a 5 star review. Easily accessible by car, quite a ways away from Loch Ness tourist area to walk. Free parking and not busy at all. I understand tour groups...More

This ancient burial ground is full of history and mystery. The best way to find it is as part of a tour group.

I knew about Cairns and I thought it would be somewhat similar to the burial stupas I had heard about. So, I was determined to see at least one Cairn when in Scotland. We stayed two nights at Drumnadrochit and the nearest cairn was the...More
