We literally stumbled upon (or should I say INTO) this ruined cairn on the south of St Mary's as we were walking along the clifftop path that skirts the end of the runway of St Mary's airport.

I had to get into it, of course, and felt around with my foot to see if there was still an open chamber underneath, and there was.
