Abstract
First paragraph: Early in 1991 fieldwork by Lorna Main (Archaeologist of what was then Central Region) at Auchenlaich, to the east of Callander (illus 1), led to the discovery of a long, apparently artificial, stony mound. All that had been previously identified at the site was a ‘cist' (Ordnance Survey record card, 1968), but subsequent examination by staff of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland confirmed Main's identification of the mound as the remains of a remarkable chambered long cairn. As noted above, the discovery of the Auchenlaich cairn led directly to the recognition of the potential significance of the Claish structure some 1.5km to the south-west.
