Nearest Town: Aviemore

OS Grid Reference: NH 896 134

Directions: As you come into Aviemore on the B9152, the site is signposted near the Fire Station.

Site Notes: These sites are always difficult. On the one hand they are still here, which is more than you can say for some, but on the other some idiot in the past approved the building of a housing estate all the way around them. Oh well.

This site has been identified as of the Clava Cairn style, which is a cairn/passage grave with a stone circle surrounding it. Pleasingly intact circle stones with a beautiful setting of the mountains around Aviemore, you just have to try & tune out the houses. Worth a visit if you’re driving through.
