This must have been a massive cairn at some point and has wonderful views out to the North Sea and of the coast line. The grass covered cairn stands at over 21 meters wide and is over 3 meters in height. Cairn material pokes thru but any trace of a kerb has long since gone.
From the Tower Of Johnston walk directly south as I did. This includes a couple of climbs, jumping over fences (barbed and electric), burns and a nice stroll thru some boggy bits. If going by road leave the A92 between St Cyrus and Johnshaven heading north. Take the minor road south west at the first crossroads. Look north and the cairn is clearly visible on the ridge to the north after the South Bradieston track.
Unlike its near neighbour at the far southern end of the hill, West Bradieston is under threat from farm machinery, equipment and cows. The farmer at Bradieston gave permission to park at his farm and from there I walked about a 1/2 mile south on the minor road. A well used track heading uphill and west leads almost straight to the site, nearer the top it becomes interesting to those who like mud.
Sitting near the summit of the hill the cairn is 9m in width and is 0.5m high. Scattered kerbs and cairn material give evidence to the damage here. It also doesn't help the the cows have turned most of the surrounding area into a mud bath. Still its an impressive area surrounded in prehistory. Tower Of Johnston and its neighbours are to the west with wonderful views of the North Sea/St Cyrus Nature Reserve to the east.
