This cairn can be found in the woods in front of Leochel-Cushnie parish church. It has a width of almost 13 meters and it's maximum height is close to one meter.

As I was returning to my car an elderly gentleman, visiting his wife's grave, explained that there had been another cairn. This had been used to built the dikes surrounding the graveyard. Nothing remains of this cairn.
