Summary:

CAIRN (Undated)
MARKER CAIRN (Undated)
Navigation cairn

Location:

NB 38872 21886

Full description:

"Situated on the summit of Cnoc Mor, at the north-eastern corner of Eilean Chalium Cille the remains of this cairn measure 1.5 x 1 metres and stand to a maximum height of 0.8 metres. Located in a prominent position, the remains are similar in form and size to other navigation cairns in the immediate area (8.2 and 8.3). Close examination could identify no signs of a kerb that might indicate that this structure is actually early prehistoric in date." (Burgess 2004, 95)
