Archaeology Notes

NJ02NW 151 00756 26399

This cairn, which lies immediately WNW of a huge rock outcrop, is situated in semi-improved ground on the SE flank of Laggan Hill. The cairn is flat-topped and measures about 7m in diameter by up to 0.7m in height over a kerb of at least seventeen boulders. This kerb appears to be graded, with the smallest stones, measuring 0.2m in height, on the uphill (WNW) side and the tallest, up to 0.5m in height, on the ESE.
