The blue granite standing stone at Pityoulish is a bonnie wee thing standing proudly in the woods of the same name. It stands at almost 1.5 meters tall and could well be an outlier for the nearby barrows. Whatever the reason, standing stones are common on this part of the River Spey.

Leave the village of Boat Of Garten (steam trains and ospreys are the claim to fame as well as Bob Dylans brother) heading south on the B970. Go through the Street Of Kincardine, past a minor road and pull in at the third farm track heading west (after the Street).

From here its over the gate on the opposite side of the road and head north west for about 200 meters. Lovely stone, lovely site!

Pityoulish Barrows (Barrow / Cairn Cemetery) — Fieldnotes

From the standing stone keep heading north westish until the wood stops. In the clearing on a small mound at least two of four barrows can be spotted overlooking the River Spey.

A square and round barrow can be seen with the other two others somewhat overgrown. A fence post also makes finding the round barrow very easy. Dense forest that Canmore mentions seems to have vanished.

Nice site overlooking the Spey with an equally nice view looking over to An Leth Chreag. Noisy geese on the other side of the river provided natures music.
