Marionburgh Cairn
Marionburgh Cairn
In a low-lying field near the River Avon stands this complex cairn dating from about 2000 BCE. There is a central ring cairn of small stones, about 5 metres across, surrounded by a bank of earth about 14 metres diameter.
There are remnants of a stone circle about the outer ring. There are 9 remaining stones from the circle; 5 are standing, 1 is leaning, 1 is set against the wall, and 2 have completely fallen. About 9 metres south east of the largest standing stone are a pair of upright stones which might be related, or might be part of another, separate monument.

Marionburgh is of the type known of monument known as Clava Cairns, after the site at Balnuaran of Clava, outside Inverness.

The cairn is only a short stroll from historic Ballindalloch Castle to the west.
