Ballavarry Burial Mound

Period: Bronze Age

NGR Easting: 240360

NGR Northing: 498780

Description: Bronze Age burial mound. This substantial burial mound still survives to a height of 3m. It stands by the roadside, in the angle formed with the private lane to Ballavarry farm, on a low hill which is prominent from all directions. The mound has a diameter of 15m, and is almost certainly truncated by the proximity of the roads and by agriculture, but is safeguarded by a modern revetment of drystone walling.

An antiquarian investigation in the late 19th century recovered a burial urn, which is now lost.
