  • The Quoyness Chambered Cairn is approximately 5,000 years old and is located on the shoreside. The cairn is about 4 metres high, and can be accessed through the small entrance passage, itself 9 metres long. Only half the entrance passage is roofed. A stone platform surrounds the cairn. The Cairn had bones from 10 adults and 5 children removed.
