Wonderfully sited at the summit of Turnhouse Hill, to the north-east of Carnethy Hill's massive example, Canmore gives the dimensions of this cairn as c12.7m in diameter, rising to a height of c0.4m with 'a clearly-defined internal robbing-scar on the SW' [R Mowat and D R Easton, 13 November 1993].
