(NN 1127 4549) Cairn (NR)

OS 1:10000 map (1974)

This carin stands in a small forestry clearing at the head of Loch Etive, and about 60 metres SW of Gualachulain. It is irregular in outline, particularly on the east side, which may have been caused by stone-robbing to provide material for a nearby wall. The cairn measures 7.7 metres in diameter and is 1.6 metres high.
