Toum is a fantastic cairn and it remains in superb condition relatively unharmed. A massive pile of stones stands at over 20 meters wide and 3 meters high with stunning views of the Spey and the Cairngorms.

I parked at the Ouchnoire track and wandered up the hill. Keep heading west when a track heads east towards Ouchnoire. At the end of road Toum is reached, look east, you would do well to miss this cairn. It is quite a steep climb and I could have taken the car but that would have been cheating. From here I hiked back down the hill across the A95 across to Tullochgorm for some more fun and games.
