The Carrach



The next stop on this scorcher of a day was to ask permission to park at Kinclune House, which is further along the B951 a couple of miles west of Kingoldrum. Once again I was given information on prehistoric sites , this time about Kinclune Hill which I've noted for a later visit.

From the house I went back down the road, west, a short distance before jumping over the wee Kinclune Burn to head uphill, over a couple fences. The climb is short but steep as I almost headed straight north. After the steepish climb the countryside is more 'rolling'. Look for the trees to the east and follow them. The site will be easily spotted as it has had a load of field clearance dumped on top.

The cairn's footprint makes it about 11m wide with several kerbs still place, especially on the west side, to the east more of the cairn can be seen. Somewhat ironically, Kinclune Hill can be seen to the east, but my feet would head west.

Tremendous views.
