Corrimony

Nearest Town: Inverness

OS Grid Reference: NH 38 33 03

Directions: From Drumnadrochit, near Loch Ness, take the A831 west towards Cannich. A beautiful, but remote road, there are not many opportunities to turn off. Stay alert for a left turn to the hamlet of Corrimony. Follow this single track lane and park where indicated. The cairn is a short walk along the quiet lane, on the right. A road atlas is advised.

Site Notes: Another Clava Cairn this time there is only a single cairn. Surrounded by its stone circle, and in a very remote setting, you sit here and feel like you could be the only people on Earth. Slightly more complete than the cairns at Clava, you still have to crawl to enter this one. It certainly adds something to the experience! The capstone is also still present, albeit dragged to one side on the top. I think it at virtually every site I visit, but I look at the size of some of these stones and still wonder how & why they did it. Then you look again, and are glad they did.
