RCAHMS Special Survey, Neolithic Monuments in the Uists and Benbecula

Date 2010

Event ID 1107626

Category Project

Type Project


A thematic review of Neolithic monuments in The Uists and Benbecula was carried out over two week-long trips in March and September 2010. In all, thirty-three chambered cairns were visited, together with eight standing stones, five stone circles and two stone rows. An updated description for each site is available to the public through Canmore. Of the ‘chambered cairns’, two are new discoveries, while seven have been reinterpreted, most of them as large buildings, and will be reclassified accordingly.
