Follow the directions for the nearby Ardler Wood cairn and from there look in a north westerly direction. The cairn is on the crest of the hill. Unfortunately a lot of damage has been done here by quads, especially on the eastern side. Pity because this must have some place. As usual the scenery all round is stunning. What is left is a grass covered mound sitting at 13 meters wide, with the highest point at half a meter.

The last time I ventured here I was faced with whiteout conditions and was up to my waist in snow. This time nature was happy enough with a fairly warm breeze.
