About the Image
Cairnholy I - one of two Neolithic chambered cairns perched high on a hill 4km east of Carsluith, Scotland. Built in the 4th millennium BC, it is known as a Clyde Cairn, a type of tomb characteristic of southwest Scotland.
Cairnholy II, further up the hill but less impressive, is said to be the tomb of the mythical Scottish King Galdus.
The name Cairnholy in Gaelic is 'Càrn na h-ulaidhe' - cairn of the stone tomb.
