One of the few chambered cairns in the mountainous N part of Arran.

The remains of a three-compartment chamber and a cist can be seen. Great views of both the surrounding hills and over the Firth of Clyde.

Access Head for the S end of Sannox village. Climb the rocky slope behind the seat and keep going to the top of the slope. Head for the gate in the deer fence. There was a stile here but it is broken. You can still squeeze through over the gate. There is a prominent stone on the rise in front of you - head slightly left of that towards the cairn.
