|Description ||Shiel Bridge/Bencallen chambered tomb
Good navigation is needed to find this cairn as the landscape is pretty featureless (NX33779440). Luckily for us the conifers had been recently cleared. There is parking (just) but the lane is very quiet. I dived up the slope and headed in the vague general direction but struck lucky.
Another strange site as the cairn cover has been robbed for drystone walls which all seemed to have been built to hem in the chamber or perhaps as sheepfolds. All that remains are some uprights and an uncharactreristic capstone.
The pylons in the area arenít marked on the Explorer Map (318, 2001 revision) but make a good guide. The ground is littered with tree stumps and the odd hidden ditch - take care.
