From the fort at Creag Bhuide it is a very short walk north to the small but lovely cairn at Carn Bheithin.

This small kerb cairn is oval shaped being just over 6m wide, tapering to just over 5m wide and 0.4m tall. It has at least 12 kerbs still sitting in place. A slight disturbance on the east has tumbled some stones but on the whole it appears, to me, to be in fairly good condition with its turf covered flattish top.

Lovely site with lovely views, especially those looking over to the nearby fort.
