Barp Frobost chambered cairn
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
From the top of the mound, you can see several of the large stones that supported the inner chamber, which is now collapsed. If anything, the location is even more scenic than nearby Reineval cairn.
Access to the cairn is straightforward, but you will definitely want good waterproof footwear. I wore rubber boots and was very glad I did!
Take the farm track immediately opposite the Frobost turnoff and follow it east for a mile, keeping the fence on your left. Where the fence ends, the cairn is slightly to your left about 50 metres ahead, across a boggy patch and a small stream.
