Chambered cairn, Camas nan Geall, Ardnamurchan

This photograph shows the remains of a chambered cairn near the ruined settlement of Camas nan Geall, on the southern shore of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. Dating from between 2000 and 3000 BC, such cairns indicate the presence of the Neolithic agricultural community, in contrast to the earlier nomadic settlements of the Mesolithic. Other ancient monuments in the area include a standing stone, about 90 metres south of the cairn, and a prehistoric fort overlooking the bay.
