3rd cairn of 4 coming down from Kilmartin
May 2018 • Family
This is the third of 4 cairns on the walk down from Kilmartin. As such you are going to visit it anyway. The two on either side are slightly more interesting - but as it is there …

In the middle

Thanks the least interesting of the three Nether Largie Cairns, but being in the middle it's 'unmissible' if you are seeing the others, and I'd recommend you do.

A magnificent example of a Bronze Age cairn
May 2016 • Friends
This is one of our favourite cairns, and you can go down into the chamber. However, take great care as the trapdoor is very heavy. Also it slides not lifts and you can jog it off its runners if you try to lift it.
Going in though is fabulously atmospheric and worth some effort!
From here you can see up the valley towards the village, and all the other cairns are in easy distance as are standing stones and Temple Wood site..
You have to climb a stile to get into the site, but the steps are shallow and there is a pole.

Excellent access

Walk along a well marked route to access this cairn, one of several in the Kilmartin glen.
It is full of atmosphere and a board gives you some basic information about it if you don't want to visit the museum

Fascinating

Don't know if it's this Cairn, but one of the 3 you can go inside and see more information. Really eerie but brilliant and so quiet and peaceful.

easily accessible ancient tomb.
Jul 2015 • Couples
Easily accessible as this is the most northerly of the linear cemetery tombs and is reached via the well maintained pathway from the museum. You can enter the tomb and see the cists therein. If the weather breaks you are a short sprint from shelter and coffee in the museum.

Follow the Yellow Brick (well grey stone) Bronze Age Linear Cemetery
Jul 2014 • Family
Third most northerly of the Kilmartin Glen linear cemetery. We started from Kilmartin House and went to Glebe and Nether Largie North first on a very wet day, so my the time we got here we were sopping wet in spite of the Kathmandu wet weather gear. Nevertheless, we dutifully read the information board and looked and the nice examples of cists in the midst of the cairn. If you are into late Neolithic and Bronze Age, this Glen is a must see. This site has a nice view (albeit mist and rain shrouded when we were there) north to the other cairns and south to the remainder. There are no facilities. After this cairn, we decided returning to Kilmartin House for coffee was prudent, so we swam back and then visited the rest by car!
