Cairn Catto
Cairn Catto
Despite the name, Cairn Catto is not so much a cairn as an elongated barrow, about 49 metres long, 22 metres wide at the head (SE), tapering to about 7 metres wide at the end (NW). It was probably built between 1000 and 2000 BCE.

The barrow/cairn is covered with some very large stones. It is 6 feet high at the south-east end, diminishing in height towards the north-west end. Stones have been robbed from the south-eastern end of the cairn and there are deep holes in the south-eastern end, though no obvious signs of internal burial chambers.

Most of the cairn is made up of pink granite.

A pair of stone axes found on the site are now in the Arbuthnot Museum in Peterhead. The cairn is signposted from the Cairncatto Farm.
