Field Visit

This mortared stone cairn, built in the style of a "coffin" cairn, was constructed as a memorial to "Alexander Cameron, the Tournaig bard, 1845-1933... who lived all his long, useful, and highly respected life on the shores of Loch Ewe, and whose Gaelic poems and songs earned for him a wide and an honoured reputation throughout the north."

Information from NTS: INVG045 (JH 1998)
