Kirkton Wood

Kerbed Cairn


Leave the B9077 at Kirkton Of Durris heading south and park at the village halls. Follow the minor road until it ends and head up the hill following the path until it also ends. Just before it ends look immediately west and the cairn can be found. Also helpful is the sign saying the site is a scheduled monument.

This , I think, would also be a good site for some gentle restoration. Canmore says there are four kerbs in the southern flank, I agree and would add another two. Sadly the path clips the site on the eastern side and as usual some houking has also been done. Despite this the cairn is still sits at 11 meters wide and is 0.6 metres high.

This is a well situated cairn which many years ago would have wonderful views, especially north. Today it still has wonderful views, the trees in their Autumn colours.
