Chambered Cairn, Clettraval 4th-3rd millennia bc Neolithic tomb of a rectangular form associated with the Clyde area, but virtually unique in the Hebrides. Originally wedge-shaped with a compartmented chamber, this 'long cairn' has been much robbed, although most of the large slabs supporting the chamber walls survive. To its west, the site of an Iron Age wheelhouse.
