Druimyeonbeg, Isle of Gigha, Argyll

Cairn (destroyed):  OS Grid Reference – NR 648 495

Archaeology & History

An old tomb could once be seen where now we have yet another one of those environmentally damaging golf courses! (I get many emails from people who are very upset at finding the destruction of our archaeological heritage because of golf courses)  The tomb was reported in 1953 to have been, “discovered in the southwest corner of a field south of Druimyeonbeg farmhouse.”  Any relics that may have been there were destroyed and there’s now no trace of anything.
