Head north west on the A928 from the A90 (north of Tealing) and take the first minor road east, then next minor road south. Today road conditions were quite tricky thanks to heavy snow but taking our time we arrived at our destination near The Wreaths farm at the first house.

From here its on foot and head east basically thru the fields, over fences, heather and flurries of snow. There is another trap awaiting the unwary. Quarries aplenty up here so lots of quarried stones to look at. In fact these places are worth a good look. Most of the dry stane dykes in the area appear to come from here going by the stone shapes and sizes.

Once at the top, in amongst these quarries, look for a small clump of trees. The cairn is underneath these trees and continues to the south. Some kerbs remain on the south side. The cairn itself is 21 meters wide and 1.8 meters tall.
