Camus nan Geall ch. cairn image

Only part of the chamber and forecourt of this chambered cairn survive, on a tiny arable plain between the shore and the hills, on the south coast of Ardnamurchan peninsula (Highlands).
The setting of the site well illustrates the habitat of the early agricultural community, combining access to the sea, arable soil and hunting in the hills.
Ninety metres to the south lies a large standing stone, decorated much later with two crosses and an animal.
