Overview

Step into a tomb with a history spanning 5,000 years of human activity.

Cairn O’Get is an impressive chambered burial cairn set amid a landscape rich in prehistoric and later monuments.

When it was first built, Cairn O’Get’s walls would have risen over 3m high, sealed by massive lintel stones. The entrance to the tomb would have been through a small antechamber, defined by two pairs of large upright stones.

Today the tomb and upright stones are still clearly visible in the landscape.
