Directions:
A short distance east of the Newton Stewart cairn, on the B7079. On the norther side of the road, other side of a stone wall.


There are two cairns here - High Lessons (no sign of it) and Low Lessons (visible as a rough grass covered mound in the middle of the field). There was no obvious place to park in close proximity.

Canmore state:
High Lesson - The cairn is almost completely destroyed, grass covered rubble base, 0.3m high. 1966
Low Lesson - A partially grass covered cairn, half of which has been removed fom its south side. It is 70ft in diameter and 6ft high. 1966
