Auchendean Hotel is situated on A95 just south west of the Dulnain Bridge, A938, junction. I asked permission to park and visit the cairn only to be told there was two, 1 behind the hotel and another at the top of hill.

This cairn is some 14 meters wide and at it's highest is 2 meters. The centre of the cairn is slightly empty due to the 1866 excavation. Still all is not lost and the cairn seems to be in reasonable condition. Most of the trees and gorse have been removed, most of the cairn material at the southern end can now be seen and at least the original outline is visible. Remarkable work but nothing compared to the top of the hill, my next site.

At the hotel, go thru the gate at the back, past the beehives and walk a further 100 meters. The cairn is slightly to the west of the track.
