A short distance south east from the Kilninian Standing Stone. On the southern side of the B8073.

I viewed the Cairn from the roadside.
Easily seen as a large, grass covered, rocky mound.

Canmore states:
‘About 440m SW of Kilninian parish church is a large cairn measuring 15m in diameter and 2m in height. A series of large boulders forming the kerb can be seen intermittently around the perimeter, especially on the S side. A considerable amount of stones has been robbed from the top of the cairn and from its N half, but otherwise is relatively well preserved’.
