A pair of marvellous Neolithic chambered cairns stand on a sloping hill looking south over Wigtown Bay. As best we can guess, the cairns were erected sometime around 4000 BCE. The first monument you come to is Cairn Holy I. This is of a type common in the region of south-west Scotland, called 'Clyde type' tombs. The cairn measures roughly 170 x 50 feet and is fronted by a crescent-shaped facade. A75, Creetown, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland

The upright stones are 43 feet apart and are closely matched in height at just over 10 feet tall (though one stone cants over at quite an angle). Port William, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
At Laggangairn you can see two standing stones to which early Christian crosses were later added, set in a remote moorland location on the Southern Upland Way.

Rispain Camp is a fortified camp or homestead dating from the 1st-2nd century AD. When Rispain was first excavated in the Victorian period it was thought to be a medieval homestead, perhaps even a castle, defended by banks and moats. Whithorn, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
Torhouse is a Bronze Age circle of 19 boulders, most of which no longer stand upright. The stones are set to form a circle about 60' in diameter, with three aligned stones in the centre of the circle. These three central stones are traditionally known as King Gauldus' Tomb, a reference to Gauldus, or Galdus, a legendary and probably mythical early Scottish king. Another site associated with Galdus is Cairn Holy, where he is also supposed to be buried.
