Clava Cairns

Highland | Culloden | Chambered cairns | ★★★

[Clava Cairns]

Only a mile away from the famous and poignant Culloden Battlefield is another monument, this time from an era over 3,500 years further back in history. There are three burial cairns at Clava, placed roughly parallel to each other and enclosed by stone circles; other cairns and standing stones nearby suggest that they were part of a larger cemetery. Crawl inside one of the main trio to get a proper feel for the construction.
