Clearance cairns near Kellah Burn (Hartleyburn)
A group of clearance cairns lie on a promontory formed by the Kellah Burn. The largest of the cairns is about 7m across, and the smallest about 2m. Most are in good condition but some have been robbed and disturbed. The remains of a rough wall, made up of large boulders, lies around one side of the promontory and is suggested may be Iron Age in date. Whether or not this bank is as old as the cairns is not known.
