  • Corrimony Chambered Cairn Holiday Accommodation Guide Corrimony Chambered Cairn

    Corrimony Chambered Cairn Holiday Accommodation Guide for your vacation in the Glen Urquhart area. The Corrimony Chambered Cairn is a cairn of the "Clava type" that has been remarkably preserved throughout the years. It illustrates the expertise and forethought of the people who constructed it because a significant amount of resources were used in the construction of its cemetery, and unlike at Clava, a significant portion of the roof of the passage still stands.

    The cairn may be found in a glen, and the area around it consists of agricultural land and wooded areas with birch trees. There is a good chance that there was an ancient settlement in the surrounding area.

    The Cairn provides a stunning Bronze Age passage tomb that has been exceptionally well maintained can be found in Glen Urquhart. It is known as the Corrimony Chambered Cairn. The burial mound is surrounded by a circle of 11 standing stones, and their heights range anywhere from 1 to 4 metres.
    A stone kerb runs around the circumference of the mound, drawing attention to its rounded edge. There is a stone with cup and ring marks on the left side of the entrance route, and the passageway was still usable at the time stay4you.com visited the site.

    The existence of a cemetery dating back to the Bronze Age has been corroborated by the discovery of passage burials at Clava Cairns, which are located not too far from Inverness. Graves in Clava culture typically take the form of a vast mound of tiny stones surrounded by larger rocks. A slender passageway leads to a small room that can be found running through the exact middle of the mound.

    Discovering Corrimony Chambered Cairn Holiday Accommodation Guide


    At the Corrimony location, the cover slabs for this chamber can still be found in their original positions. During an excavation that took place in 1953, marks were found in the burial chamber that pointed to a single crouched interment that lay beneath the cobbled floor. The cobblestones were removed in an unprofessional manner during the Victorian era, which is likely why they are no longer there.

    The only way to go through the one-meter-high tunnel that leads to the tomb is on all fours or by waddling like a duck. The room is constructed using large boulders as the basis, and drystone walls are used to enclose the space. Once upon a time, the ceiling of the chamber was corbelled inwards, a single slab was set above it, and then the stones from the cairn were heaped on top of the slab to form a mound.

    There is a single large slab that is located on the side of the entrance tunnel. On its surface, there are cup and ring marks engraved into the slab. It is thought that this enormous stone served as the structure's original capstone.

    It would appear that there was room for a 12th stone to be set among the 11 that encircle the cairn; however, there is no evidence that this stone was ever placed there. The lintels that previously supported the roof of the corridor have been replicated as a pair of stones that may be found to the west of where the entrance to the passageway is located. On top of the mound lies a second stone that also has a cup mark, although it is lying on its side rather than upright.
