Well worth a visit

Amazingly peaceful and historic place. Easy to find and the falls were gorgeous too, worth making the trip, but didn't go through time!

Very Interesting place to visit, nice surrounding too. No fee to pay either. Well worth a visit. There is a local RSPB reserve nearby too.

The cairn is in very good condition given its age, crazy to think of how much hard work went into building it. Very interesting, worth a visit. Plenty of car parking spaces nearby.

Lovely cairn. Located in sheep/cow fields. Beautiful location along a stream and a quiet road. Even though it was drizzling, it was worth the trip.

Quite fascinating and something I have never seen. Situated in a remote area and was the grave of a high ranking woman highland warrior.

This cairn was not bustling with tourists and it made for an adventure. The standing stones ringing the cairn were intact. The cairn itself was amazing. The stones piled high and the entrance needed to stoop and crawl to enter. A fabulous place to visit.

It is well worth the short journey off the main tourist trail of Loch Ness to see the Corrimony Cairn. Given that it is 4,000 years old you can only stand in wonder and think of the people who built it. There is a site with similar structures at Clava Cairns just beside Culloden Battlefield which we also visited and... More

I didn't even know about this site until we signed up for the seven-hour Jacobite Tour. Honestly, it seems like an add-on to the tour in order to make it "worth" the seven hours, but it was interesting to see, nonetheless. If you're an Outlander fan, it will invoke thoughts of being transported in time. You will be able to... More

The top of this 4,000 year old burial chamber caved in long ago, but the walls and the access tunnel are intact, so we were able to crawl inside.
