Leave Knockando heading south on the picturesque B9102 take the second farm track west. This goes past Garlinemore House, a small wood before Leakin farm comes into view. The cairn is a short walk in a field to the south.

It sits about 16 meters wide and is just over 1 meter tall. Cairn material can be seen but turf mostly covers the site. Some kerbs remain in place and more importantly a cup marked slab in the central cairn can still be found. I counted 18 decent cup marks and a few weathered efforts.
