Ancient British Rock Art

12 13 The Clava Cairns, or Bulnaraun of Clava, consist of three cairns, two of which have passageways aligned to the southwestern midwinter sunset position. They may be found down a minor road off the B9006 from Inverness. Cup marks are clearly visible on some of the stones, and their deliberate inclusion and arrangement within the overall design and structure of the site is strong evidence for their possessing some kind of significance and meaning. The Clava Cairns group is one of the best examples of a Bronze Age burial complex in Scotland, each of the three cairns here being surrounded by a stone circle. The cup marks are to be found on the outer facing stones of the cairns, but it has been suggested that the carvings may be even older than the structure, the stones having been reused because of their special status. cup MArkIngs Clava Cairns, Invernesshire Clava Cairns, Invernesshire Oakland circle Clava Cairns, InvernesshireChris Mansell
