Fodor's Review

Dating from the 3rd millennium BC, the Barpa Langass Chambered Cairn is the only chambered cairn in the Western Isles known to have retained its inner chamber fully intact. You can peek inside, but don't venture too far without a light. It sits close to the A867 between Lochmaddy and Clachen.
