This cairn is also spelt Pitmancy and can be found north of the historic Fyvie Kirk, complete with Pictish stones, just beside the B9005. Take the first lane right/east after the church and follow it for a mile. The cairn can be seen due south overlooking the River Ythan. It has magnificent views all round. The farmers, thru the years, have been kind and left a 10 meters by 10 meters mound 3 feet high. On it rests one fallen stone. Except for the farm, near the B9005, the one surprising thing is the lack of dry stane dykes.
