Vere Point, Westray

Type:Orkney-Cromarty.
Round cairn.
Tripartite or stalled chamber.
Location:Map
Notes:The structure was opened around 1906, when “skeletons were found between the two pairs of transverse slabs.” At the time it was recorded that the carefully built chamber was roofless and was subsequently used a livestock shelter.

The cairn lies in an enclosure (approx 0.3ha) defined by a low bank.
