Bargrennan chambered cairn

Bargrennan chambered cairns are a class of prehistoric chambered cairns found only in south-west Scotland, in western Dumfries and Galloway and southern Ayrshire. They form a separate group from the Clyde cairns. Unlike Clyde cairns, Bargrennan monuments are passage graves, with one or more chambers set into a round cairn; as well as being structurally different, Bargrennan cairns are separated from Clyde cairns by their siting and distribution. Murray suggests, she notes that as sheep rees are built into and over these types of cairns, more are to have been lost under shepherd's buildings. The type site is Bargrennan; this monument and nearby Cairnderry have been excavated but having been robbed out neither have provided material for dating. Both sites show extensive reuse in the Bronze Age, including the addition of a Bronze Age cist in White Cairn, it has been suggested. However, a mid to late Neolthic date has been suggested.
