Description and History – This is the only cairn that occupies the small Carraig Breac and measures around 20m in diameter. It is very ruined with absolutely no stones remaining from a kerb or chamber so the form it may have taken remains unknown. All that remains is cairn material.
Difficulty – Easy enough to climb up to from Cairn O. This provides a good starting point for reaching Carnbane West.
