Clava Cairns – the real Craigh na Dun

Clava Cairns is a well-preserved Bronze Age cemetery near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. For many years, it played second fiddle to its more famous neighbour, Culloden Battlefield.  That all changed in 2014, with the release of the TV dramatization of Diana Gabaldon’s popular Outlander novel.  Clava Cairns became a bucket list destination overnight, after it was suggested that Outlander’s fictitious stone circle, Craigh na Dun was inspired by the site.
