Park in the large lay by opposite the A867 / B894 turning.
All you have to do then is walk straight up the steep hill – about a 5 minute walk.
You need to step over one fence. The cairn is not visible from the road.

Canmore states this is a ‘probable cairn’ – to my untrained eye it is a definite cairn!

The cairn has been dug into and now consists of 6 large stones with many smaller ones scattered about. This is an ideal spot for a cairn; the highest point in the area and giving great views all around.

Canmore states:
‘The grass covered remains of this probable cairn measure 10.5m x 9m, surviving to a height of 06m. Several large slabs of stone lie nearby and are possible spoil from the chamber. Numerous other stones were found outside the probable entrance to the east side of the cairn’.
