Margaret Stewart associated this cairn with other upland cairns in Perthshire e.g. Strathgroy and even suggested it had a peristalth . Can't see the resemblance myself , the others are much bigger and in the case of Strathgroy the peristalth is obvious . Nothing like it here . tiompan Posted by tiompan

11/11/2012 - I was on the hill north of Jock's Cairn earlier in the year and had made my mind up to visit this one when I next got the chance. Weather was pretty good on Sunday so we headed to Sma' Glen. Parked at Newton Bridge and climbed the steep north side of the hill to the cairn. The cairn has a pretty big footprint but is topped by a 2 metre modern cairn. The location of this one is superb. Sma' Glen is a favorite place. thelonious Posted by thelonious
