Key Sites

Amongst the rich archaeological landscape at Garrywhin (ND 314413) is a cairn and associated stone rows. The cairn, excavated in the 1860s, contained a cist, in which were two oval flint flakes, fragments of a beaker and two human molars. Seven or 8 rows of stones radiate down the slope from the cairn. Only 30 stones survive today, although there may have been as many as 80 when the stone setting was first built. Some other ruinous stone settings exist nearby.
