Following the Scottish Government's announcement that restrictions are expected to relax, some of our staffed sites will reopen on Friday 30 April. Tickets available now.



Visit a tomb set apart from the others of Kilmartin Glen, on a shaded, tree-covered terrace.

Like most of the other Bronze Age cairns in Kilmartin Glen, it is a large, round burial mound about 4,000 years old. But Dunchraigaig stands apart from the others, and is not considered to be part of the linear group.

It’s unusual on the inside, too: excavations in the 1800s found remains of up to 10 individuals in one cist, dug directly into the ground and capped with a massive 3.8m stone.
