Abstract


Report on the excavation of a Neolithic chambered cairn which was originally investigated in 1898. A passage way leads to a subterranean chamber which is overlaid by a much disturbed upper chamber. A second small subterranean chamber is located just south-west of the cairn. Artefacts include human bone, worked flint, stone disc beads, a stone hammer or macehead and Neolithic pottery.
