Sadly this cairn is about to vanish going by its present condition. Flattened by forestry and horse walking there is a scatter of stones approximately 8 meters in width. At its best the cairn reaches no more than 0.3 meters in height.

Still on a nice sunny day the Colthill forest (plenty of woodland walks) feels a very old place despite being practically surrounded by Aberdeen and its ever expanding suburbs.

Entering Bieldside from the east take Kirk Brae, the first minor road heading north west. Keep going until the Colthill farm entrance, the cairn is directly opposite.
