CAIRN (Undated)
Navigation cairn


NB 39523 20286

Full description:

"Situated on the summit of the high ground to the south of Cromore croft 33 the remains of this small cairn measure 0.75 metres in diameter and stand to a height of 0.5 metres. Location, size and form suggest that this feature is a navigation cairn similar to those in the immediate vicinity of Cromore. All (8) are situated on high ground with good views of the surrounding sea lochs providing sight lines for navigation. The remains of another cairn can be seen 15 metres to the south-east (63)."
