If you like to see different things, go check this out. 4500 year old burial site, well preserved but I'm sure some of it is reconstructed. Lots of sheep and cows grazing nearby. My 1.5 year old loved it!

This is a 6,000 year old grave of a Pictish princess! You can crawl in and actually stand in the cairn. The walk along the road is beautiful, there are lovely cows and sheep everywhere, wild flowers, birds - stunning!

This cairn is brilliant, plenty of parking just 100m away and the entire cairn is accessible which makes this so much better than others as you can really get a feel for it and get up close and personal.. Great signage and information at the entrance gate explains everything about it, very educational.

Our day consisted of driving around Skye and then to Loch Ness for a boat cruise on the Loch and then on to Inverness for the night. After a pleasant ride past Urquhart castle we arrived back at Clansman harbour. My daughter really wanted to see this chambered cairn and I was reluctant as it would have meant backtracking on...

What an experience! It was especially meaningful for me as a practicing Druid to visit this ancient passage tomb. Its accessibility and preserved state made it particularly enchanting. There are few places that afford the visitor the unique experience of climbing over, under, and through like at Corrimony Cairn. It is equally a very spiritual place. With the knowledge of... More

If you're taking the trip west from Inverness to Loch Ness, via Cannich, it's worth taking the short turn off to see this cairn. Well interpreted, and very well cared for, and there's a parking area close by.

I've seen many chambered cairns and this one is spot on, there is a good guide at the entrance gate, there is ample parking 100 metres away, well worth a visit if your in the area.

Saw this by chance as we were out and about so decided to take a look. Interesting way to spend 15 mins.

This is a lovely little attraction, but only visit if you are going to include some of the nearby attractions. In the near area there is the Mony Stone, the Corrimony RSPB reserve, Corrimony falls, Mony cave, if you include some of these other attractions it is a very much worth the visit
