Historic Scotland

Opening times

Corrimony Chambered Cairn is open year-round.

 

Overview

Walk amongst a circle of standing stones and discover this ancient passage grave, dating back 4,000 years.

Corrimony Chambered Cairn is a ‘Clava type’ cairn in a remarkable state of preservation. It demonstrates the skill and planning of its builders: considerable resources went into the construction of its grave, and unlike at Clava, much of the passage’s roof survives.

The cairn is situated in a glen, with pleasant surroundings of birch wood and cultivated land. There may well have been a prehistoric settlement close by.
