From the "pheasant prison" walk east, this cairn is thankfully undisturbed. But for how long? It's eastern side is covered in colourful ferns whilst the other directions are moss and grass covered. Several quartz rocks can also be seen sticking their heads thru the moss as if gasping for air. At present Canmore are correct in saying the cairn is 9 meters wide and 2 meters tall. With the snow flaking down this cairn was a peaceful end to a day that started with raging seas and heavy snow.
