(NF 7547 2496) Barp Frobost (NR)

OS 6"map, Inverness-shire, 2nd ed., (1904)

Barp Frobost, a chambered cairn, much dilapidated, lies on the top of one of a number of small knolls and is 8' above the peristalith uprights, 8 of which can be seen, indicating a diameter of 70' - 80'. The cairn material has spread to the foot of the rise, c. 13' below the top. The chamber is to the E of the centre of the cairn, and the passage is presumably in the E or SE, its precise position being uncertain.

A S Henshall 1972, visited 1962; RCAHMS 1928.

Barp Frobost is as described above. At the base of the cairn, on the N and E sides, are the stone footings of at least seven shieling huts.
