What people are saying:

When you come to Inverness, you must check in here. There is no need for a ticket to Krafa Tomb. It is open all day and is suitable for sightseeing throughout the year. It was early in the morning when my friend and I arrived, and we arrived in front of the Krafa Tomb. The whole world is full of greenery, and the trees near the tomb are beautiful, lush, with distinct roots, as if they have come to a fairy tale world. If it's winter, the world is probably a world covered in silver, and it must be beautiful. There is a stone stele standing in front of the scenic spot. There is no word on the stele. Although it is a tomb, there are no tombstones of celebrities in this attraction. It is just a stone mound piled up with a circle of stones. A circle is full of irregular stones, large and small, and it takes great perseverance to build a circle artificially. The surface of some rocks has been showing moss over the years. It can be seen that this is a very historical attraction. It is very convenient to shoot anywhere here, you can stand in front of the stone mound, or behind it, as long as the whole stone mound is photographed, it will be very shocking. There is a small path in the front stone mound where you can walk to the center of the circle to observe the stones closely. Some stones have been decolorized, but no stones have fallen. Because the whole attraction is relatively small, and it is especially important that this attraction has no toilets and rest places! So my friend and I walked around for half an hour and then left. There is the ancient battlefield of Colloden near it. We went for a stroll and it was also majestic.

    Amazing discovery

    Visited this as found it by surprise. Normally go to Culloden Battle site but noticed signpost to Clava Cairns. Glad we visited. Free site with large car park.

    This free tourist site is well worth a visit, in fact a 'must do'.

    This seemingly little known site deserves to be a major tourist attraction. We were captivated by the place and it is a must-see if you are in the area.
