Reineval Chambered Cairn
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Unlike many chambered cairns, the entrance does not appear to have been disturbed. The location is quite wonderful, with views up the valley to the east.
A mile to the south stands a similar chambered cairn at Barp Frobost.
It is really easy to find Reineval cairn; take the Mingarry turnoff east from the A865. Where the paved road ends take the right fork up the farm track. The cairn is easily visible on the slope ahead of you, about half a mile ahead.
