|Description ||White Cairn chambered cairn
One of many monuments called ‘White Cairn’ in this area and not to be confused with another White Cairn located only 1.2km to the NW! This particular example is listed as a must see site in the areas Archaeosights leaflet. It can be found in the forest east of Glentrool Village at NX 35257838. It is not easy to find the right access to this forest but we went from NGR NX35807846 - a patch of rough ground between two cottages. You will find a green post with a white band around the top - follow these in to the woods and to the cairn.
Please note that to find the area you will need both OS Explorer Mpas 318 and 319.
The chambered cairn is a superb example of this type of prehistoric architecture.
