Deskry Farm can be found by going south on the farm track just before the A97 crosses the Don. I parked at the farm and made my way up the hill. The cairn is situated between two small woods.

Nothing much remains of this grass covered cairn which must have been massive. Nowadays it's width can be measured at 17 meters and height at 0.4 meters. Somewhat ironically a pile of field clearence, no doubt containing cairn material, sits slightly to the east.
