Examine a Neolithic cairn that acted as a place of ritual and burial for more than 1,000 years.
Torrylin Cairn is much-disturbed today, having been robbed, ploughed and dumped upon for years. But its exposed burial chamber lies well-preserved, enabling us to examine a Neolithic resting place.
The cairn’s a typical Clyde type tomb, and there’s evidence that ritual and burial activity both took place here. It was originally likely similar to the relatively undisturbed cairn on Carn Ban, nearby on Arran.
