Just along the road east from Easter Gallovie going south is the track to Clury Farm. In the field immediately to the east this interestingly shaped Wessex type cairn stands.

The actual cairn being 14 meters wide and 2 meters tall siting on a platform that is almost 20 meters wide. It is grass covered with cairn material poking thru. A dry stane dyke surrounds and has unfortunately caused some damage. Being in a fairly flat area enables good all round views. Also causing interest (at least to me) is the presence of 4 large recumbent boulders 3 complete with chokes. These must probably be field clearance or Strathie and his cousin have came down to pinch Aberdeenshire's recumbents. Maybe Strathie will provide an answer :-)

Still another lovely site, close to the road so therefore a short walk.
