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. 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.
