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 on 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 is 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 a Clava Cairn, after the site at Balnuaran of Clava, outside Inverness.

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