Carman Muir Burial Chamber
Dumbarton, Argyll OS Map
Chambered Cairn Canmore
Also known as Walton Farm Chambered Cairn
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 black-and-white infrared pictures here were taken around sunset in late summer, the colour pictures at the end of December.
