Situated at the edge of Aswanley Wood this cairn sits on top of the similarly titled hill. It is some 18 meters in diameter and was covered in grass, although by it's shape it was obvious that this cairn had been badly robbed. Views up and down the Deveron valley are obscured by the trees. However directly opposite on the other side of the river are the cairns at Cairnborrow, Backtack and Newton Hill.

Leave the A920 at the minor road to Edinglassie, just before the Deveron if coming from Huntly. Follow this road for three miles, past Artloch, taking the first track north after Cairnargat farm. This track peters out to dead end. From here it is on foot following the edge of the wood, south for a 1/4 mile. Probably there would be more to see in the winter months if the roads are open.
