Information Board


This stands on the northern bank of the River Enrick, some nine miles from Drumnadrochit on Loch Ness, and is a good example of a restored Clava Cairn. A couple of the capstones are missing, and are in fact re-erected as replacements for some missing standing stones in the circle round about! It's a large cairn with a single south-eastern entrance, large central chamber and ringed by standing stones. Nice surrounding area and very peaceful, good information board.
