Grey Cairns of Camsters

The Grey Cairns of Camster are two large Neolithic chambered cairns and are among the oldest structures in Scotland, dating to about 5,000 years ago. The Cairns show the complexity of Neolithic architecture, with central burial chambers accessed through narrow passages from the outside. the two Cairns are:

  • Camster Long – a 60 m (200 ft) long cairn with “horns” at each end, aligned in an NE-SW direction
  • Camster Round – a circular cairn measuring 18 metres (59 ft) in diameter by 3.7 metres (12 ft) high
