|This ruined burial chamber on a slope overlooking the River Clyde would
be very easy to miss if it weren't for the large triangular portal stone
standing in front of a jumble of smaller stones enclosing a rectangular
chamber about 15 feet long. The portal stone is about 5 feet tall.
According to the CANMORE record, a broken polished stone axehead and a deposit of quartz stones was found at the site.
The infrared pictures here were taken around sunset in late summer.
