North of a small track off the B9076 near Brae.

We parked where the track starts and I headed east, through a couple of field gates.

The field is full of large scatterings of stone and I couldn’t make out which stones were the cairns? I did however see a nice rainbow.

In the distance I became aware of a herd of cows heading straight towards me (no doubt thought I had brought them food). I stated walking back towards the gate but the cows were gaining ground. I then heard them running and gaining fast. I upped my speed and made it to the gate just before they got to me!

There is nothing to really recommend a visit to this one.
