From Garvock Hill I retraced my steps and went over the road, B9120, heading north east, jumping over the western gate. They say you learn something new every day and on this day I found out about the St James Lochs. I'd never heard of them.

The cairn is situated just short of the lochs with superb views north, west and south. Sadly, like Garvock, it is badly damaged, and like Garvock it has a better known neighbour, the Cairn Of Shiels.

Sitting at 8m wide and no more than 0.4m high there isn't much to see. Displaced kerbs and cairn material sit amongst the turf.

This is a beautiful area, a beautiful walk. Having a look at the Tower of Johnston and Cairn of Shiels and their lesser known neighbours makes for a fine way to spend an afternoon.
