Logie Newton Cairns
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The quartzite blocks are very large, ranging up to 1.3 metes long.
Cairn A is the smallest at 5m in diameter, while Cairns B and C are 7.5m across. Cairn A has most of its kerb stones intact, though several lie within the circle. Cairn C is a turf-covered mound about 0.6m high.
The cairns have never been excavated but probably contain one or more burials.
