Cup-marked Stone, Clava

This photograph shows a cup-marked stone at the kerb of the northeast burial cairn at Clava, near Inverness.

The site at Balnuaran of Clava comprises of two chambered cairns and a ring cairn, each surrounded by a stone circle. The site has given its name to two varieties of cairns found in and around the Inverness area (ring cairn and passage grave). It was originally thought that the site dates from the late-Neolithic but recent excavation work suggests they may be later, from the Bronze Age.
