Visible from the road when approaching from the east but not when directly south of the Cairns.

Canmore describes the three cairns thus:
‘East Cairn – round cairn 47ft in diameter and 5ft high. Much disturbed.
West Cairn – round cairn 50ft in diameter and 3ft high. Much destroyed.
Central Cairn – round cairn 35ft in diameter – a mass of debris’
