Glebe Cairn dates from the Early Bronze Age (ca.1700 B.C.) and is the northern-most cairn in a group of five Bronze Age cairns known as the Linear Cemetary found along the valley floor in Kilmartin Glen.
When excavated in the 19th Century, two stone cists were discovered along with a fine quality jet necklace.
