I have a fascination with Cairns so its not hard to see why I gave a 5 star review. Easily accessible by car, quite a ways away from Loch Ness tourist area to walk. Free parking and not busy at all. I understand tour groups...More

I knew about Cairns and I thought it would be somewhat similar to the burial stupas I had heard about. So, I was determined to see at least one Cairn when in Scotland. We stayed two nights at Drumnadrochit and the nearest cairn was the...More

Lovely area to drive through. Attraction was clearly signposted and near the main road. Once there, it did not take long to see. As someone else said, it is a pile of stones Still interesting to see and to wonder how they built it!

The Corrimony Cairn is a fascinating piece of preserved history in an area full of it. It's off the beaten path and fairly small, so it's easy to stop for 20-30 minutes, read the sign, look at the cairn, snap a few photos and be...More
