Seven years ago I sadly predicted that this cairn would be completely trashed. That prediction has happened as the top of Whitecross has had all of the heavy vegetation i.e gorse, whins, small trees completely obliterated. This in turn means the cairn has all but been removed unlike its near neighbour at East Law. (they took great care to protect that cairn)
Still the view remains the same and B had great fun looking down badger holes. Same directions as last time. This time there was a blizzard on the way down. Great fun!!
This is an overgrown site which will soon be consigned to histories scrapbook. It has been badly robbed, rubbish flung on top and is overgrown with whins and weeds. The only thing going for this site is the view, Bennachie rises up to the south so whoever was laid to rest here certainly had a lovely spot. Also one kerb remains of this 4 meter wide cairn, its difficult to decide on height because of all the obstacles.
Leave the A96 just north of Inverurie and follow the signs to Chapel Of Garioch. Turn south at the village taking the third left, Whitecross is signposted. On the hill there is a small wood, the cairn being a few meters south.
