Archaeology Notes

NC60NE 15.01 6775 0585

This cairn stands on the E tip of a spur close to the centre of the township of Caolas, a prominent position which affords a wide outlook across the valley of the Abhainn Leataidh. It measures 4.8m in diameter over a kerb of edge-set boulders up to 0.8m high and 1.5m long, some of which have slumped forward or fallen away, although four appear to be in position. The cairn material within the kerb stands about 0.3m high.
