Balnuaran of Clava
5 miles SW of Inverness
Collectively referred to as the Clava Cairns, Balnuaran of Clava, situated just a mile from Culloden Battlefield, is a Neolithic cemetery, and consists of three large stone circles, each with a massive cairn at its centre. Two of the cairns are passage-graves while the middle one of the three is a ring-cairn (no passage). The southwest cairn is clearly visible, near the road, on the Bing Map below.
