The Baron's cairn can be seen in east from both of the Cat Cairns so follow the undulating path for a 1/2 mile. Go thru a new steel gate and a path leads to the cairns summit on which a trig point is perched. The much robbed cairn still stands at 19 meters wide and is some 1.3 meters tall. It seems to have been tidied up a bit as saw no fence or bricks that canmore go on about.

Industrial estates are very close, in fact immediately next door. The large brand new fence topped with razor wire making the place seem like a prisoner of war camp. Good views tho.
