Cairnpapple Hill

Historic Sites

Bathgate Hills, Bathgate, West Lothian, EH49 7AL

    One of the most important prehistoric monuments on the mainland of Scotland, Cairnpapple was used as a burial and ceremonial site from about 3000 to 1400 BC.

    A once-sacred hilltop where people first held rituals and raised neolithic monuments some 5,500 yars ago. You can visit a Neolithic henge, see the site of a great timber circle and descend into a Bronze Age cist grave (now covered by a modern, domed chamber).

    Good views of east central Scotland may be had from the hill.
