Wikipedia:

Navnet cairn stammer fra gælisk og betyr steinrøys, noe som indikerer at denne lille tøffe hunden en gang i tiden ofte må ha vært å se (arbeidende) i steinrøyser. Rasen må kunne sies å ha en geografisk opprinnelse fra de nordvestre delene av Skottland og øygruppen Hebridene vest for fastlandet, spesielt øyene Skye og Harris.

A cairn (carn in Irish) is an artificial pile of stones, often in a conical form. They are usually found in uplands, on moorland, on mountaintops or near waterways.

The Cairn Terrier is one of the oldest terrier breeds, originating in the Scottish Highlands and recognized as one of Scotland's earliest working dogs, used for hunting burrowing prey among the cairns.
