|Description ||View looking southeast across the cairn towards Douglas Water. The remains of this Clyde type chambered cairn are about 45metres long by 11metres wide but it has been truncated around the edges by ploughing. It is situated on farmland at about 120 metres above sea level. Access is along the track to Achagoul farm from the A831 (ask permission), then up the hill towards the woods. Achnagoul 2 is in the woods & can be reached (with difficulty) from the track behind the gate. |
|Thanks Rich, had to wait ages for good light! There are many great sites like this in Argyll that are rarely visited, despite being close to the megalithic tourist trap of the Kilmartin valley.|
