|Description ||Kingís Cairn
Another inclusion in the regionsí Archaeosights leaflet - quite a way into wilderness country but the lane is a nice drive. Once you have found the relavant stile your walk begins. It is not a long walk but it is uphill, dark and wet (I wish I hadnít watched The Blair Witch Project a night or two before!) but the Kingís Cairn is worth the fear. Strangely the cairn (at NS55210090) is enclosed in a fence (easily crossed) and then a ramshackled dry stone wall.
Not in as good condition as the Glentrool Village White Cairn but interesting all the same as the cairn material has been stripped back to reveal the internal architecture and chambers.
Perhaps the walk wasnít that scary but is was dark (due in part to poor weather conditions) and it was wet - wear welleis, donít take your kids!
