Description and History – This one was difficult to spot and I’m still not sure whether I actually did spot it. There are no pictures that I could find online of the tomb. Like A3 and B there is little left of the cairn and it seems to be little more than a mound in the grass. The tomb was likely robbed of its stone to build the massive stone walls that are nearby.

Difficulty – Like all tombs on Carnbane West there is some walking involved.

As you can see, there is very little here to see.
