Cairns on the Rheast by Druidale

by Bernadette Weyde

There are three cairns, the top two are very obvious with their quartz stones on top, but there is a third lower cairn which is just a green patch. The top one was excavated and revealed a burial urn which was unfortunately dropped by the labourer hired by Canon Quine to excavate it. About 3 metres west of the top cairn is a standing stone which is lying almost flat.
