Grey Cairns of Camster



The Camster Grey Cairns are two Neolithic chambered cairns located about 8 miles (14 kilometers) south of Watten and 5 miles (8 km) north of Lybster in Caithness the Highlands region of Scotland. They are date back about 5,000 years, being one of the oldest structures in Scotland. 

The cairns illustrate the complexity of Neolithic architecture, with central burial chambers accessed by passages from the outside. They were recovered and restored by Historic Environment Scotland in the late 20th century and are open to the public.
