Cairnborrow is only a few meters away so this is really easy to find, difficult to reach like it's near neighbour. This cairn is some 18 meters wide and reaches a height of 2 meters. There are 3 kerbs on the western side but they hid in the snow.

Now the real fun was about to begin as we walked north to the three cairns in the distance. I'd no plans to go to these and at the time I'd no clue to their names.
