The Giant's Grave

The cairn

Turf pulled back to reveal kerb stones

More kerbs

This is situated in the Sma' Glen, to the east of the road running north through it. The Giant's Grave itself is a large stone, probably just an erratic, with little or no megalithic significance.

The Scottish Megaraks visited this area today during a tour of Perthshire. We had a look at the cairn, which according to Canmore was surrounded by kerb stones. Only one was visible, but on pulling back some of the turf and generally nosing around, we discovered that there are still at least eleven in situ. The cairn itself is fairly unremarkable, only being around a metre tall. It is visible from the road if you know what you're looking for.
