This afternoon, I am presenting some images of the prehistoric cemetery near Inverness.

This dates back 4000 years and was used in two distinct periods: 2000BC and 1000BC.

The cairns extend along a gravel terrace raised above the River Nairn. The site may have been used for farming prior to construction of the cairns. Probably only one body would have been placed in the central chamber of each cairn.

South West Cairn

Central Cairn

North East Cairn
