Ledmore (Chambered Cairn) on The Modern Antiquarian, the UK & Ireland's most popular megalithic community website. 2 images, 2 fieldnotes, plus information on many more ancient sites nearby and across the UK & Ireland.
The cairn is easily spotted from the road on the other side of a barbed wire fence.
You can park on the grass verge and access to the field is over a locked field gate.
The ruined cairn is on a grassy knoll and is approximately 20 metres across x 1.5 metres high.
There are lots of grey stones sticking out of the grass along with fern and heather.
The weather was sunny with white fluffy clouds and only a slight breeze.
This is a pretty spot with a river close by and mountains in the distance.

This cairn , like so many of the chambered cairns in this area is low lying and close to the present road(s) /obvious route avoiding the bog and hills , which with the exception of Ben More Assynt are not very high but nevertheless impressive .
