SURPRISE STOP ON OUR RABBIES TOUR
Sep 2019
As part of a Rabbies Tour we were on our way to Islay when we stopped at these cairns/standing stones. A brief stop, however it was very interesting learning about these cairns.

very interesting
May 2019
In early May we went to see the ancient monuments near Kilmartin. A wooden path takes you across a ditch to the standing stones, then you walk for a fair distance through the meadow and across a country lane to a stone circle, which supposedly may have been a temple, then come back across to the cairn, which is quite impressive. There you can see a burial chamber with stone slabs forming an entrance and roof. Altogether it is an interesting day out for those interested in monuments from the stone age in which Scotland abounds. We visited Arduaine Gardens nearby first, then the stone age complex stopping at Dunchraigaig Cairn in-between.

The hike is very nice

Walk from site to site and end up at the temple wood. Nice gentle walk. Summer is midge season. You do walk across fields of livestock.

You can actually crawl inside and have a look.

Again, part of the walk through the glen includes this barial site. The kids went right in and it gave you an appreciation of the work that went into making these. Well worth the walk around.

A step back in time
Sep 2018 • Friends
Although not able to see inside this cairn due to renovation work, to view a structure created over 4,000 years ago in a truly lovely setting is amazing. Well worth stopping in Kilmartin by the visitor centre and walk about half a mile through a field with some friendly highland cattle, over a bridge and a short path to this structure.

Climb right in
Jul 2018 • Couples
This cairn is really nicely preserved. I climbed into the door end and crawled and squirmed out of the other end. The small opening was inviting until my belly full of ice cream came into play. The archaeology in this glen is amazing and well worth a visit.

The best of the 4 in the chain
May 2018 • Family
This is the last of 4 in a chain down about 2 Km from Kilmartin - and the most interesting as the interior was the biggest. Worth the pleasant walk down, on a good day, rather than giving up earlier.

I loved being in here, it felt a bit intrusive initially but if one visits this place with respect for the people who lived and ied here this a wonderous place.

A wonderful walk
Jul 2017 • Family
Great for kids to walk through the centre of the cairn. Probably the most interesting of the the three acorns, aided by the interpretation board.

Kids loved it
Apr 2017 • Family
Kids got a kick out of climbing in & out of the cairn - very tangible history lesson (& also great for pretending to be a zombie of course!!)
