Field Visit (2007)

NM 0359 4540 Beinn Ghott Kerbed cairn situated in an improved field some 150m E from Dún an t-Sithein (NM04NW 15). The cairn is in a relatively good state of preservation. It is 4m in diameter and not more than 0.3m high. At least eight kerb stones (0.3–0.5m in size) survive on the northern side of the cairn. A small standing stone, 0.5m high, protrudes through the cairn material at the SE edge of the cairn. This marker stone arrangement has a close parallel with the kerbed cairn on Fuday, off Barra (Branigan and Foster 2002).
