A total of four trenches were dug across barrows at Garbeg.

Of particular interest was one of the square barrows where baulks had been left at each corner of the surrounding ditch and here a small boulder had been placed.

Round and square type ditched barrows appear alongside each other at both Garbeg and Whitebridge – a feature thought to be unique to the Pictish cemetery.

by James Mc Comas (NOSAS) The Pictish people of the mid to late first millenium AD once inhabited what is now northern and eastern Scotland.

The cemetery at Garbeg (Canmore ID 12281, HER MHG3361) consists of 23 square and round barrows with surrounding ditches.

The barrows are thought to cover single long cist burials.
